About Festivals Edinburgh
Building on a culture of collaborative working the Directors of Edinburgh’s leading Festivals came together in 2007 to formally establish Festivals Edinburgh with a mission to maintain and develop the value of the Festivals’ and the Festival City’s position locally and globally, through:
- development and delivery of collaborative projects and initiatives which support programme development, leadership and audiences
- acting on behalf of and representing the collective strengths of the Edinburgh Festivals
Festivals Edinburgh is a strategic umbrella organisation focused on over-arching areas of mutual interest.
