About

Edinburgh Art Festival is a unique celebration of the visual arts, delivered in partnership with the city’s leading galleries, museums and artist-run spaces. Over the past thirteen years we have grown to become the UK’s largest annual festival of visual art, presenting work by more than 250 artists at over 40 venues during August 2016. We engage new audiences with the visual arts, support artists to deliver ambitious projects and foster rich debate amongst local communities about culture and heritage in our city.
