Summerhall Artist Development Programme

Summerhall has been awarded funding from Creative Scotland for a pilot programme of artist development initiatives. The pilot 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, and four Space development weeks, offering artists in-kind space to develop new work.
