Festival summer school on artistic entrepreneurship

The University of Edinburgh collaborated with the Edinburgh International Festival and Royal Conservatoire of Scotland to run a new summer course for artists and art producers on Developing Artistic Entrepreneurship.

The course was aimed at those studying at a postgraduate level or already working in a variety of creative fields, including artists, performers, producers, and programmers

We look forward to bringing together world-leading festival practitioners with the arts entrepreneurs of the future.

Running during the renowned International Festival, this summer school brought together an eclectic, international group of emerging and established arts professionals, who had the chance to see a range of performances during Edinburgh’s festival season, as well as have the opportunity to share their work and gain valuable feedback and insights from fellow attendees.

Developing Artistic Entrepreneurship ran 22-26 August and was led by Festival Director and Chief Executive Sir Jonathan Mills and Director Designate Fergus Linehan.
