Artist Development

Summerhall was delighted to have been awarded funding from Creative Scotland in 2019 for a programme of artist development initiatives.

The programme comprised of: 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 was also supported by BBC Arts.


Summerhall Space applications have now closed for Spring 2020.
