Imove was formed as a legacy of the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad. In the Imove 2012 programme, 25,753 people took part in 32 projects creating 139 new commissions involving 1,351 artists and performers, 223 partner organisations, 569 organisers, 500 volunteers and 13,458 under-25s for an audience of 2,083,016 people.
All exploring the fact that we move, in different ways, at different speeds and for different reasons. We also explored the movement of peoples, how movement can mean picking up everything we own and ending up in another place. Our explorers were some of the most exciting artists working in Yorkshire, Humberside and North Lincolnshire and our exploration took place not just in theatres and galleries but on the body of the region itself, on its moors, in its sea, its streets, its pools, its parks and parklands.
Imove’s Cultural Olympiad programme was primarily funded by Legacy Trust UK and Arts Council England.
