About the Andrew Carnegie Lecture Series
The Andrew Carnegie Lecture Series is a programme of annual public talks at Edinburgh College of Art (ECA) by some of the most innovative people working in the arts, worldwide, today.
Together with student workshops, seminars and one-to-one meetings with the speakers, the series places ECA at the centre of international discourse on art and creative practice.
The series was established in 2014 as part of the centennial celebrations of Carnegie Corporation of New York, one of the many institutions and organisations established by the Scottish-born philanthropist, Andrew Carnegie.
Steel magnate Carnegie donated much of the wealth he generated by to help improve society, with a particular focus on education. This also led to the foundation of the Carnegie Trust for the Universities of Scotland in 1901.
