Festival of Creative Learning Pop-ups

You can run a Festival of Creative Learning Pop-up event any time throughout the academic year. This area of our work was developed in order to encourage people to explore new ways of learning and teaching throughout the year, and to be able to provide support in a timely and flexible manner.  

If you would like to run a small scale Festival of Creative Learning Pop-up event (up to £500) any time throughout the Academic Year, please read on and submit an application via the online form link below.

If you would like to run a large scale Festival of Creative Learning Pop-up event (up to £3000), you can apply for a Festival Big Grant via the Action Fund Regular Grant Scheme. This is generally open for applications in September and October each year. More details here

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
  • listing of your event on the Festival of Creative Learning website event calendar and the use of our event booking channel or Eventbrite platform if required
