Creative Associates

Initiatives for emerging creatives

How to get involved...

Alongside those on stage the Pleasance has also supported a great many individuals in associated creative, administrative and technical roles. We run a number of initiatives throughout the year for emerging artists including opportunities for one photographer, one film maker and two journalists to develop their work within a specific remit as part of the biggest International arts festival in the world, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
