Imagine

Inspire

The Festival of Imagineers is a vibrant showcase of local, national and international work at the intersection of art and engineering.

FOI works with creative thinkers and innovators locally, nationally and internationally to create a unique festival of outdoor/site specific performances and interactive experiences, outdoors, indoors and in unusual spaces, transforming the city over six days where art, design and engineering meet.

Over the next 5 years Imagineer has ambitious plans to build the FOI into a major international festival, where people will come together to imagine the impossible and wonder at the extraordinary creations at the intersection of engineering and art.

 FOI 2018 runs from 15-22 September and will see the launch of Imagineer’s major new commission, Bridge and the unveiling of some exciting new collaborations, which will transform the festival over the next 5 years.

Atmosphere in pool was just lovely – a time out of time. Normal rules didn’t quite apply & people could speak to strangers. Thank you!
