Calling all curious adventurers!

There is a place where something very special and very important is missing. It's not something you can touch or feel. Adults have tried and tried to find the lost things but so far nothing has worked. The people of this place now need your help.

If you accept this mission, you will be invited to enter a world of paths filled with hidden clues. Tasks will be presented to those who require a big heart and a huge imagination. Will you say yes to this quest? Story, craft and potion-making come together in this artistic journey for children.

Lost was produced through ArtPlay's Young Idea Makers program which facilitates the creation of art experiences by children for children.
