We are committed to creating a more inspirational Fringe in order to foster a lifelong passion for the arts amongst Scotland’s young people and champion creative learning in our schools and colleges.

We have several different initiatives for 2019 and beyond. If you are completing any Fringe related work you think could be of interest to other schools or teachers in Scotland, please let us know!

There will be no cost to the school – the Fringe Society will cover all costs associated with this project. This project has been developed in partnership with Arts & Creative Learning, City of Edinburgh Council will run in January and February 2020 depending on the needs of your school.
