Immerse is an ambitious, ground-breaking programme which will transform children’s learning in 6 primary schools in Edinburgh (based in areas of greater need and high index of social deprivation). The project will embed theatre and creativity over three years in the schools, through the following activities repeated over three years:
- Immersive in-school theatre intervention (The Lost Lending Library in Year 1)
- Artist residencies over 10 weeks
- Festival visits and creative learning projects
The three years will be progressive, starting in Year 1 with an artist-led experience, and ending up in Year 3 with confident teachers ready to develop their own ideas with Imaginate and artists supporting them throughout the process.
