The next phase of our creative journey is the launch of the Scottish Emerging Sculptor Award which invites applications from new and emerging visual artists from Scotland.
The Arts Strategy for Edinburgh Park is ambitious and provides activity for each phase of the development to incrementally build a respected cultural reputation for Edinburgh Park as a new destination within Edinburgh’s world-class cultural offer.
We are encouraging a change of perception of Edinburgh Park to a New Cultural Quarter and destination for places and spaces to be enjoyed by all.
