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 should not be seen as ‘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 individuals and businesses to carry out our mission. Around 66% of our funding comes from public sources; the rest we must raise ourselves. With your help, we will ensure that more children, families and teachers across Scotland can enjoy transformative experiences of theatre and dance – and that artists are supported to develop inspiring new performances.
