Festival of Creative Learning 2019

  • -

The Festival of Creative Learning is a festival exploring creative learning and innovation at the University of Edinburgh. It is supported by the Institute for Academic Development (IAD). Both staff and students are invited to apply to run events with the Festival.

"The Festival aims to provide space for staff and students at the University of Edinburgh to play, to experiment, to innovate, to collaborate and, occassionally, to fail. A space where the emphasis is not on how many seats we fill, how many tickets we sell, how many answers we get right, but rather on truly exploring and pushing boundaries, communicating in radically new ways and leaping into the dark to find out what new ideas await us there." - Jennifer Williams, Festival Coordinator

Staff and students at Edinburgh College of Art (ECA) will run and participate in a host of events across the week. You can see the full listings on the Festival website. On this page, we're collating the events run by or being run at ECA.
