We make books, art and education programmes.

The Curved House is a little company with a big vision. That vision is a world in which societies mobilise the power of diversity in all its forms and collaborate to tackle global issues.

Connecting every human (regardless of how disparate their world views or life experiences are) is key to realising this vision. The Curved House creates books and education resources that empower everyone, everywhere, to learn, create and communicate. Our work draws on a compelling body of research showing that integrating the arts into education can improve learning outcomes, not just for individuals but also for communities and societies.  

We have distributed over 150,000 free books to schools, inspired over 300,000 students with our arts-infused science programmes, published over 10,000 pieces of original poetry and prose, and worked with incredible partners all around the world.

If you share our vision and also value books, art and education, we’d love to hear from you. Get in touch if you’d like to collaborate.

“Kristen Harrison and her colleagues have consistently delivered everything they promised and more – as the project proved more popular than expected they took on additional work in their commitment to extract as much educational value as possible.”
