Join Imaginate in the Lyceum Theatre Rehearsal Room for an opportunity to meet and discuss touring work for young audiences with programmers, venues, producers and organisations from across Scotland. This is an informal networking event facilitated by Imaginate staff – an opportunity to spread the word about your touring plans or next piece of work. Venues, organisations and producers currently signed up to be there include Scottish Storytelling Centre, Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Summerhall, Buzzcut, Pitlochry Festival Theatre, EPAD, Tron Theatre, Redbridge Arts, Platform, Independent Arts Projects, Paisley Arts Centre, Puppet Animation Scotland, Theatre in Schools Scotland, Take Me Somewhere and of course Edinburgh International Children's Festival.
"The Meet the Programmers event in 2016 was well organised, inclusive and welcoming. As an artist promoting a new show I was able to initiate conversations with programmers and my show was booked for performances as a result of this. I would certainly recommend this event. Tenterhooks benefitted hugely and I would definitely go again." Diane Thornton, Tenterhooks
There will also be the opportunity to carry on discussions when the event will move to the Traverse Theatre Bar for Imaginate’s annual Christmas Social to which all are welcome.
