Into the classroom with Imago

Valuing education and community 

 

Creating community is at the heart of Imago Theatre`s mandate. As a company that produces socially relevant and political work, having a relationship with teachers and students is of great importance to us. Through our programs such as Artista, a youth mentorship program connecting young women to mentors through theatre practices, and our Pay-What-You-Decide policy for our main stage shows, we at Imago are dedicated to get the art out and invite the conversations in. The staff at Imago Theatre is made up of theatre practitioners. We are performers, directors, writers, visual artists, and educators. Creating active partnerships with schools is one of our priorities. We stand by the belief that theatre should be part of the education system in order to inspire dialogue about the changing nature of our times through the portal of art.
