Join Imaginate at 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, style of work or other ideas you would like to discuss. Venues, organisations and producers currently signed up to be there include Summerhall, Dumfries & Galloway Arts Festival, Tron Theatre, North East Arts Touring, Edinburgh Festival Fringe/Made in Scotland, Scottish Theatre Producers, Theatre in Schools Scotland, Platform, Traverse Theatre, Creative Scotland, Ricca Ricca Festa (International Theater Festival Okinawa for Young Audiences, Japan), Edinburgh Performing Arts Development (EPAD) 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 and Starcatchers Christmas Social to which all are welcome.
We would like all of our events and opportunities to be accessible to everyone regardless of any physical, economic or any other barriers. We have a budget to support this so if you would like to talk with us about how we can help please contact Fiona Ferguson, Creative Development Director.
