Immerse Summer project was a four-day artist intervention project which took place in September 2022 as part of the Immerse project, with 2-3 artists leading various creative explorations with children in six schools across Edinburgh:

  • Brunstane Primary
  • St Ninian's Primary
  • St David's Primary
  • Forthview Primary
  • Craigroyston Primary
  • Canal View Primary

Activities included:

  • Exploring the power of dance to communicate thoughts and feelings, drawing ideas from different dance styles of the past.
  • Rediscovering the classroom space by rearranging the classroom, creating sculptures, and exploring movement. 
  • Creating a library of stories for the class to keep after the project, by making their own mini books and recording audio stories.
  • Finding out more about events that happened on this day in the past and making a creative response to this such as posters, song lyrics and short scenes.
  • Creating an environment for mischief-making and freedom by inventing comedic characters and working with movement, choreographic tasks, and materials.
