Accelerator is an Imaginate project offering research and development funding, mentoring, producing support and performance opportunities for artists to create new theatre and/or dance works in progress for young audiences. We will provide ongoing support for the work in progress with the aim of helping to find funding to bring it to a full production.
We are currently looking for artists living in Scotland who have experience in leading the development of new work. You don’t need to have made work for young audiences before as long as you are excited about the artistic potential of creating theatre and dance for young audiences.
The Accelerator panel is:
Eoin McKenzie - Freelance theatre maker/Launchpad 2018 artist
Noel Jordan - Festival Director, Imaginate
Fiona Ferguson - Creative Development Director, Imaginate
The panel will meet on Thursday 20 June; all applicants will hear if they have been selected by Friday 5 July.
We are keen to see a more diverse range of artists making work for young audiences with theatre and dance that is excellent and relevant to our audiences. Additional budgets are available if there are any access requirements for the application process or the project itself. Please get in touch with us if you would like to discuss this prior to application.
Accelerator is supported by the PLACE programme, funded by the Scottish Government, the City of Edinburgh Council and the Edinburgh Festivals, and supported and administered by Creative Scotland.
