Courtyard Commission Project: Open Call 2024

Open Call for visual artists to respond to the theme of ‘transformation’.

For the third year running, Summerhall is delighted to announce the annual Summerhall Courtyard Commission Project. Through a process of open-call proposal submissions and a panel selection, the project offers one local artist the opportunity to create site-specific work that will be exhibited on a permanent basis. This year we invite artists to submit proposals for commissioned pieces that respond to the theme of ‘transformation’. The resultant work will be displayed on the outside of B Block in the Summerhall Courtyard. We can’t wait to see the myriad of ways local artists interpret the theme and to unveil the transformation.

For details and how to apply, please download the Open Call Information Pack.

If you would like the information in larger print or need assistance with your proposal, please let us know by emailing

The deadline for submission is 5pm on the 31st of May 2024.
