PUSH at Edinburgh International Children's Festival

31 May 2018 — 3 June 2018
Various venues, Edinburgh
  • Thursday 31 May 10:00

From 31 May - 3 June 2018 a PUSH delegation will visit Edinburgh International Children's Festival for the final PUSH activity for the project.  The Children's Festival, produced by Imaignate, is Scotland's international arts festival for young audiences and has been running for 29 years.  The festival will showcase 14 productions from Scotland and around the world alongside a programme of delegate events for industry colleagues.  In 2017 there were 304 delegates at the Children's Festival from 23 different countries so this offers a huge networking opportunity for the PUSH delegates.

The PUSH group will have some closed events to reflect together on the project and leave Edinburgh with some positive actions we can all take as well as a programme of topic-related workshops.  They will also host a discussion event and an end of project celebration open to all festival delegates and interested artists.  And, of course, they will enjoy the infamous Imaginate Ceilidh!

In addition they will see:

We come from far, far away by NIE
Paper Memories, a work in progress by Jabuti Theatre
Baba Yaga by Shona Reppe, Christine Johnston & Rosemary Myer
Expendition Peter Pan by Het Laagland
