Festival of Creative Learning Pop-ups

You can run a Festival of Creative Learning Pop-up event any time throughout the academic year outside of the curated Festival week in February. Please note: Pop-ups normally do not take place during the curated week in February. This area of our work was developed in order to encourage people to explore new ways of learning and teaching at other times of the year, and to be able to provide assistance and funding more quickly as the curated Festival week from application-to-event is a long process. You will have access to more support, training and resources if you apply and schedule your event as part of the curated Festival week in February, but you will still be able to access funding and support - and have more flexibility with timing - if you apply to run a Pop-up event. If you require funding for your Pop-up event up to £500, you can apply any time during the academic year using the application form and guidance below.  

If you do not require funding, but would still like to run a Festival of Creative Learning Pop-up and take advantage of our resources, event guidance and promotional support, as well as having your event listed on our website, you can apply at any time of the academic year noting on your application that you do not require funding for your event. 

Please email us at creative.learning@ed.ac.uk with any questions.  

Benefits of running a Festival of Creative Learning Pop-up include:

  • funding for your event
  • access to Festival logos for use on your promotional materials
  • access to event planning resources
  • list your event on the Festival of Creative Learning website event calendar and use our event booking channel if required
  • access to the Festival team if you require advice on planning your event
  • promotional support including the listing of your event on our website and via our social media
