Global Cultural Fellows build on festivals' promise

Artists from around the world have gathered in Edinburgh as part of a new project that uses the city’s festivals to explore how the arts can connect people and cultures.

A novel exploring an unlikely relationship between two actors and a biography that opens a window on the world of fine art have won Britain’s oldest literary awards.
