Partnership is at the heart of Edinburgh Art Festival’s work: we were founded in 2004 as a platform for the city’s visual arts institutions, and those relationships continue today. Our partners invest in the festival through a scaled model that reflect the wide range of galleries, organisations and institutions in the city.
