Festival of Creative Learning

Funding to run an event as part of the annual, curated Festival of Creative Learning.

The Festival of Creative Learning is a year-long series of events focusing on creative learning and innovation at the University of Edinburgh, culminating in a week-long curated Festival in February. Both staff and students are invited to apply to run events with the Festival.

The aims of the Festival are to support applicants to:

  • gain new skills and broaden mindsets
  • develop creative learning practices
  • explore the definitions of innovation and creativity and how they can be further embedded into the learning experience
  • effectively design and deliver innovative and creative events
  • forge meaningful and interesting collaborations and learning communities
  • use resources and knowledge to enhance our local and global community

Funding to run a February Festival event

You can apply for up to £500 to support an event during the Festival week in February.

Deadline for applications

The next deadline is anticipated to be mid-October.
