Artist Development

Summerhall is delighted to have been awarded funding from Creative Scotland for a programme of artist development initiatives.

The programme comprises: two Labs, offering artists time, space and money to develop new work; two Scratch nights, offering artists the chance to try out an idea in front of an audience; four Space development weeks, offering artists in-kind space to develop new work; a Nothing Ever Happens Here… associate scheme for emerging bands and musicians; a residency for a visual artist and two Dissection songwriting workshops. The Lab strand is also supported by BBC Arts.

Applications for the spring artist development schemes have now closed – please see below for opportunities currently available.
