Each year Edinburgh Art Festival works with a number of artists, partners, artist-led organisations and creative bodies in delivering the UK's largest annual festival of visual art.
There are several key modes of participation: Partnership, Open Submission, Early Career Artists and Volunteering.
Partnership in Edinburgh Art Festival is through a formal process of enquiry and application. If you are a visual arts organisation within Edinburgh and are interested in contributing towards the festival programme, please make an initial enquiry through email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All proposals for partnership are presented to the Edinburgh Art Festival Board.
Open Submission - Special Projects and Events
Every year, we invite proposals for projects conceived for Edinburgh Art Festival by curators, artists and organisations working in the field of visual art and visual culture. If you have a project specially conceived to be shown at Edinburgh Art Festival, or you are a venue that only opens during the festival, you can apply to be part of our programme. If you’d like to be sent more details about this, please sign up to our newsletter from our homepage.
Full dates, application forms and submission deadlines will be posted on the website shortly.
Early Career Artists
We’ll be making an announcement soon about Platform: 2016 for early career artists to take part in the festival. If you’d like to be sent more details about this, please sign up to our newsletter from our homepage.

Each year Edinburgh Art Festival works with a team of volunteers, offering opportunities to gain experience of working in the vibrant visual art sector during one of the busiest times in the city. Volunteers participate across the festival, from invigilating commissioned works to leading tours and hosting our festival kiosk.
A call out for volunteers is posted every Spring, if you’d like to be sent more details about this, please sign up to our newsletter from our homepage.
