What is the Imagination Museum Consortium?
A growing community of dance artists and heritage practitioners interested in finding out more about each other's practice and building new collaborative opportunities.

Why are you limiting number of participants at the events?
This will help us manage numbers of people in break-out groups for example, and ensure that everyone has an opportunity to feel they can contribute to group discussions if they want to.
Will there be a waiting list for tickets if the event becomes fully-booked?
Yes, if you find the event fully booked when you come to reserve your space, do let us know if you're interested in joining if anyone has to drop out. Alternatively, let us know if you would like to receive the resources from the 5th/9th July (contact [email protected] or [email protected]).
I've booked my ticket via Tickets Ignite but haven't received my Orientation and Participant Pack links yet - is there anything I need to do?
You're welcome to contact us on [email protected] / [email protected] to follow up on this, but it's likely we may sometimes need a bit of time to review new sign-ups and send out the information, so don't worry if you don't receive it straight away.
Made By Katie Green is a contemporary dance company using dance, text and music to respond to places where you would not usually expect to find a dance performance. Most recently we have done this through our 'Dancing in Museums' and 'Dancing in Caves' projects. We are interested in telling stories about what it means to be human, what this has meant throughout history and how what has happened in the past affects us now. We want to create vibrant, memorable, moving work, and to do this in all kinds of places for a range of different audiences.
