Case Studies

Since the major Edinburgh Festivals started to formally collaborate, through the auspices of their own tailor-made organsiation Festivals Edinburgh, they have undertaken a number of ground-breaking projects.

Such work has led them to be described as 'pathfinders' for the wider cultural sector, a description that recognises that their breadth, depth and scale often allows them to undertake projects that others would find more difficult.

Below you can find a number of case studies outlinging such projects in areas such as programming, marketing , environment and innovation.
