Why we need your help

Ideas Fund to support artists

Schools are off, the Edinburgh International Children’s Festival is cancelled, and many independent artists have had their work cancelled while parents and children are stuck at home for the foreseeable future.

So Imaginate is launching a new project to:

  • Occupy and inspire children with innovative projects led by theatre and dance artists for children at home
  • Help parents and carers by providing theatre and dance activities and projects to get involved in as a family 
  • Help Scottish artists with paid work and time to explore new ideas to connect with young audiences

We are asking for YOUR support to make this happen.

Imaginate is committing £5,000 towards an Ideas Fund pot that artists can apply to. Can you help us double that amount over the next month?

An Ideas Fund pot of £10,000 will enable us to support at least 10 exciting new ideas from artists, following an open application process. These ideas will be aimed at children, they might happen online, arrive by post, or something else that we haven’t thought of yet!

These are tough times for us all and we hope that by pulling our resources together, we can help make a small difference for independent artists while bringing joy and creativity to families in Scotland.

Please give what you can. Every penny will be ring-fenced for this project. If you have any questions, please contact our Fundraising Manager Molly at molly@imaginate.org.uk

Thank you!
