From grassroots to global

Culture Edinburgh is the key to successful cultural and event development in Scotland's capital city


What we do

The City of Edinburgh has both a culture plan and an events strategy. We bring together businesses, funding bodies, festival organisers, performers, artists, producers and venues to build on our city’s reputation for excellence. Our role is to implement our plan and strategy by supporting and facilitating the people who create and deliver the world-leading events and initiatives that have made Edinburgh a cultural capital of the world.
