Imagineer is a new project funded by the Royal Academy of Engineering. This multi-disciplinary venture will bring together Glasgow Science Festival, University of Glasgow engineers, the School of Culture & Creative Arts, actors and a musician.

The aim is to challenge perceptions about engineers and to create a space where the public can engage with engineering creatively, through specially-commissioned theatre, music and performance.

The project will include free engineering-inspired shows for the public and secondary schools in 2017.

Keep an eye on our website for updates and show dates.
