Creative Learning

The International Festival reaches thousands of people through our year-round creative learning programmes.

We believe that creativity is for everyone! It inspires self-confidence and improves the way we communicate with one another - qualities that permeate all aspects of life, not just art. 

Our programmes empower people to express and challenge their opinions through art practice and critical thinking. 

If you would like to discuss opportunities to work with our Creative Learning team, please contact Caroline Donald, Head of Creative Learning, or Neil Fox, Creative Learning Project Officer, on +44(0)131 473 2076 or
