We are delighted to invite YOU to join us for the 2019 Festival of Creative Learning, a week of innovative learning events at the University of Edinburgh, taking place 18th-22nd February 2019. This year we have more events than ever that are open to the public, so it really is not to be missed!

Festival of Creative Learning 2019, 18-22 Feb, #FCL19

Our goal is to make space for staff and students to explore original, experimental and collaborative ways of learning in a nurturing space and to celebrate the work of all our event organisers and the discoveries we make together along the way.


Over 100 extraordinary creative and innovative events are taking place during the curated festival week.
