In early 2019, we had a call out for an Accelerator (new writing) artist to support a playwright in developing a new work for young audiences. The selected writer is Skye Longeragan.
In June 2019, we had a second call out with an open remit. The artists selected are Shotput (Jim Manganello and Lucy Ireland), Oliver Emanuel and Xana Marwick.
We will do an open call out again in early 2020.
After an open call out, two Accelerator artists were selected by a panel made up of Imaginate staff, industry colleagues and freelance artists. Peter Lannon and Niroshini Thambar both developed a new work in progress for young audiences between September 2018 - May 2019, click on their links below for further details.

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.
