About Us

Founded in 2005, Imagineer make extraordinary outdoor and site-specific work at the intersection of art and engineering, environmental and social change.

Collaboration is at the heart of our work. Our projects bring together artists and creative thinkers with engineers, architects, educationalists and designers. We also partner with individuals and organisations from across sectors, including universities, commercial business, local authorities and other arts organisations. Working together in this way, we are able to seed new ideas and nurture brilliance.

Imagineer’s arts programmes are developed in parallel with community and education projects. We discover the ‘Imagineers’ of the future and create the conditions and the frameworks that allow them to flourish. Imagineer respects difference and we welcome diversity as a means to achieve greater creativity.

We understand that ambitious artistic programmes must be environmentally and financially sustainable. Imagineer operates a Leave No Trace policy. We are constantly learning about what this means in practice for our projects, and are willing to share our successes and failures so that other people can learn from our experiences.

Imagineer is made of a strong core team of experienced Creative Producers and Artistic Directors who develop their work within the distinctive vision and mission of the company.

Producers and creative collaborators work with the Chief Executive of the company and core administration, finance, operations and digital staff, who will help them to achieve their projects and to programme them at the best time them to achieve the best results.

Some projects take time to develop and grow through research and development activity, and will only be realised when they are ready.

Imagineer’s home is the newly transformed Daimler Powerhouse in Coventry.
