Linda White

Founder and Creator
Imagination Play Project
Linda White, M.S.W., M.A.Ed., is the founder and creator of Imagination Play Project, and an experienced educator and clinician. As a Play Curator, her focus began with young children and has grown to working with people of all ages and abilities.
Linda works directly in elder centers in Bulgaria and Romania bringing her materials to engage with the elder population adding joy to their day.
She began doing intergenerational programs in Kansas City-”Articipation” at the Epsten Gallery and Village Shalom, connecting communities and generations through the arts. She uses loose parts and creativity to find whimsical and interesting materials that intentionally engage and awaken curiosity. To her amazement, Linda has found that same materials engage every age group.
Drawing inspiration from the schools in Reggio Emilia, Italy, the rich aesthetic landscape of NYC, and nature, she creates experiences using a variety of materials that encourage open-ended exploration, engage the senses, and inspire creativity.
