Find out what goes on behind Summerhall’s doors – Edinburgh’s most diverse creative hub.

This spring, Summerhall’s resident artists, management and the staff who call this arts complex home are filling the building to the brim with their work for their first ever collaborative exhibition: PROJECTSUMMERHALL.

PROJECTSUMMERHALL celebrates the absolute wealth of artistic endeavour and cross-pollination going on inside the building – including visual arts, sculpture and live performance. There will be photography, film and video, plus publications, print and jewellery.

Opening up the Summerhall community to the public, there will be plenty of opportunity to visit studios, workspaces and offices throughout the three weeks. Residents will be on hand to share what they do and talk about their practice – you might even meet their dogs.

Opens Saturday 24th February – Sunday 18th March 2018.

Tuesday-Sunday, 11:00-18:00.

Please note: The Open Studio weekend, originally planned for 10-11th March, has been postponed.
