Imaginate has a strong commitment to accessibility and equality.
We want to create an environment where everyone is able to engage equitably in our programme of activities. Whether this is as an audience member at the Edinburgh International Children’s Festival, as a participant in our schools and community programme or as an artist delivering work or taking part in our creative development opportunities.
As an organisation, we believe in the Social Model of Disability, which recognises that people are disabled by the barriers present in society, rather than by their impairment or difference. We are working towards removing these barriers in the way we work (see different areas below), but realise we won’t always get it right. We welcome feedback on how we can improve. If you have any suggestions or recommendations please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
This video manifesto from Al. Di. Qua. (an artists collective), which demands the cultural rights and recognition of disabled artists, captures exactly what we believe in.
