What is Creative Forest?
In a nutshell, it’s a ground-breaking methodology, a framework, a way of doing things, or better yet – a way of getting things done. Practiced, designed and developed over 10 years, a Creative Forest is a learning eco-system with specially designed purpose driven areas that provide the scaffolding and guidance you need to manage yourself, your teams, your projects and your dreams. Whether you want to start a physical community, a digital community, or both – Creative Forest is all about connections – bits, bytes AND bodies.
A CREATIVE FOREST STORY
The Creative Forest story below illustrates one example of how the Creative Forest model works. The model can be applied to any type of project such as games development, film making, physical product development, picture books, scientific research projects – you name it. The nature of each project is defined by the participants.

What Our Clients Say
From the mouths of babes …
“Without Kohknowco Lab I’m not sure I would have learned to program and I certainly wouldn’t have had as much fun as I did. Oh, and I presented at Microsoft Tech-Ed and was on TVNZ Breakfast Show when I was 15!”
SOFTWARE ENGINEER @ GOOGLE, SYDNEY
“Creative Forest’s Kohknowco Lab gave me the freedom to find my passion and study it to my heart’s desire throughout my high schooling. I enjoyed every minute of it. I still keep in touch with the mentors and business connections I met throughout the process.”
