News: Funding update

25 January 2018


Imaginate has received standstill funding from Creative Scotland for the next three years which is good news. 

However our sector, and more crucially, theatre provision for children and young people in Scotland, will be hugely affected by the devastating decision to cut Catherine Wheels and Visible Fictions’ funding entirely. These companies have been fundamental in building Scotland’s national and international reputation for excellence in the young audiences sector.

We are now hoping to find a way to work with Creative Scotland to ensure that Scotland’s children’s theatre sector continues to thrive and remains a world-leader in work for young audiences.
