Digital Delegate Encounters 2020


As we were unable to meet up face to face for our 2020 Festival, we marked the occasion with a series of free online encounters to bring the children's theatre and dance sector together.

Over 600 industry professionals around the world joined Imaginate for a range of digital events including discussions with artists, panel talks, networking events and social activities.

Digital Delegate Encounters hoped to create a friendly space to share anecdotes and observations amongst our global peers who are inventing novel ways to deal with a new era for the performing arts.
