I'm completely convinced that the experiences we give our children through providing high quality theatre and dance can change their lives and raise their aspirations.

—Ann Moore, Headteacher, Canal View Primary School

Imaginate exists to improve and enrich children’s lives. Experiences of high-quality theatre and dance are not ‘optional extras’, or simply entertainment – they can have a deep and lasting impact on children’s confidence, aspirations, and the ways in which they see themselves and their place in the world. Imaginate works to enable more children from all backgrounds in Scotland to experience excellent theatre and dance, more often.

As a charity (SC016437), we rely on public funding and the generosity of our supporters to carry out our mission. Around 66% of our funding comes from public sources; the rest we must raise ourselves. By supporting Imaginate, you are helping to build hope for more children, teachers and families across Scotland. You are also supporting artists who make unforgettable theatre and dance for children, at a time when they need it most.
