Edinburgh Art Festival

Festival or Organisation Name: 

Edinburgh Art Festival


26-7-2018 to 26-8-2018


Festival or Organisation description: 

"Edinburgh was once an art desert at festival time. Yes, there were alternative comedians hiding under every manhole cover, but if you were a lover of the visual arts there was little reason to go. Until 2004, when the Edinburgh Art Festival was founded, and everything got better." Waldemar Januszczak, The Sunday Times

Founded in 2004, Edinburgh Art Festival is the UK’s largest annual festival of visual art. We bring together the capital’s leading galleries, museums and artist-run spaces, alongside new public art commissions by established and emerging artists and an innovative programme of special events. The vast majority of the festival is free to attend. Find out more about Our Programme and Previous Festivals.

Alongside our main Festival Programme we run an annual series of Learning and Engagement activities to engage young people with our Commissions Programme and Partner exhibitions through workshops, tours and school projects inspired by the work of our participating artists.

We are committed to minimising our environmental impact, working directly, and in partnership with our participating venues and festival colleagues. Find out more about our Environmental Policy.
