Festival City Stories

We best know our festivals in their busy moments of delivery, when we experience their world-class performances, exhibitions and events taking place across the city – but their work doesn’t stop when each edition comes to a close.

Over the coming months we’ll be highlighting some of the many stories from groups and individuals involved in festival projects throughout the year. From community wellbeing hubs to storytelling workshops powered by good deeds, we’ll share some of the positive impacts of the year-round work.

We’ve teamed up with creative street advertising specialists JACK ARTS SCOTLAND to present a series of posters sharing the experiences of those involved in these projects, working with newly graduated illustrators from Edinburgh College of Art to bring their words to life.

From August onwards JACK ARTS SCOTLAND will showcase these posters at their sites across the city, each linking through to this page for the full stories on the projects and illustrators.
