Attention, Scotland-based performing artists: applications are now open for the Made in Scotland showcase at the 2020 Edinburgh Festival Fringe!

The Made in Scotland showcase – operated by the Fringe Society in partnership with the Federation of Scottish Theatre, the Scottish Music Centre and Creative Scotland – shines a spotlight on high-quality theatre, dance and music created in Scotland, raising its international profile at the Fringe and supporting connections with international promoters and industry figures.

Shona McCarthy, Chief Executive of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society, said:

'We are thrilled to be launching the fund for the 2020 Made in Scotland showcase and look forward to seeing another programme of the very best music, theatre and dance from around Scotland enrich the stages of the Fringe. We are very grateful to the Scottish Government for their continued investment in ensuring that the work coming out of Scotland is well placed to take advantage of the world's largest arts marketplace and the opportunities that it offers.'
