Our Vision

We aspire to be a platform that will broaden the lives of children across different sectors. We believe that in the changing educational landscape, creativity is being forgotten. We promise to bring together inspirational, inclusive and pertinent ideas that will strengthen children's experiences beyond the classroom. Our unique event will bring inspirational speakers from all walks of life together, to share their ideas about this issue and inspire others.

Sitara Emily Shah

Sitara is a Front-End Web Developer and Designer. She works at ClearScore, a Fintech startup, where she designs and builds interactive animations to simplify the complexities of finance. With a First class degree in Art & Art History, Sitara is not your typical coder. On leaving university, she worked as a producer in a global creative agency where she was first exposed to digital media as an art form. She then went travelling around Latin America for year in camper van, where she taught herself to code and on returning she enrolled on an intensive coding course. Sitara believes coding is another art medium - a tool for creating visuals with numbers.
