Pop-Up Exhibitions & Events

Each year the festival issues a call for projects and events conceived especially for the festival. Taking place in pop-up venues across the city, this programme is a chance to discover new work in unusual spaces. 

The call for submissions for Edinburgh Art Festival 2018 will open in January 2018.

Art Late

Taking place in partner galleries and venues throughout the city, Art Late is a series of specially programmed openings and events every Thursday evening in August during the festival, taking in live music, artist performances, talks and tours.

Children & Families

Explorers is our programme of activities, workshops and events for children, families and young people.
In 2017 we expanded our work with schools, to run a week of free visits for school groups, working in partnership with City Art Centre.
