The Festival of Creative Learning is a year-long festival focusing on creative learning and innovation at the University of Edinburgh. It is supported by the Institute for Academic Development (IAD). Both staff and students are invited to apply to run events with the Festival.

The central team consists of 2 full-time projects & engagement staff based in the IAD office.

This year (2016/17) the Festival consists of events and activities running throughout the academic year, along with a curated, week-long programme of events which took place on 20th – 24th February 2017.
