Imaginate and PUSH are delighted to present an afternoon discussion with programmers based in Scotland, Belgium and Italy to talk about their thoughts, fears, ideas and ambitions around programming work for young audiences exploring gender and/or sexual identity.

The event will be chaired by Pernille Møller Taasinge (PUSH Partner/Aabendans) who will be joined by Noel Jordan (Festival Director of Imaginate, Scotland), Lu Kemp (Artistic Director of Perth Theatre, Scotland), Gerhard Verfaillie (Artistic Director of Krokus Festival, Belgium) and Daniele Del Pozzo (Artistic Director of Gender Bender Festival, Italy).

This event is part of PUSH, a 2-year small co-operation project funded by Creative Europe exploring three topics in theatre and dance for young audiences – gender and sexual identity; (over)protection; migration. You can find out more about the project here – www.pushproject.eu.

The PUSH discussion will be followed by a scratch event and then networking drinks.
