Culture Planning and Collaboration in the City of Edinburgh

Edinburgh is recognized as one of the most successful cultural cities in the world – an extraordinary architectural heritage, vibrant festivals and events, significant venues and collections, and home to a diverse and inventive range of artists, creative enterprise and innovators.

What makes a culturally successful city, and how does it remain so? Whose responsibility is it? Who measures the success? What are the challenges for those involved on the ground – the artists, companies, venues, and funders, who make things happen? How does it remain relevant to those who want to participate, to learn, or enjoy? How do you balance local, national and international activity in a tight fiscal environment?

Moderated by Edinburgh's Director of Culture, this session will explore the city's cultural ecology with several arts leaders. The primary topic will be Edinburgh’s recent culture policy refresh process and systems that have been created to support artists and creatives.
