EPAD Upcoming Events

Edinburgh Performing Arts Development (EPAD) is a capacity building project for Edinburgh’s independent performing artists and producers that provides support by identifying and promoting  opportunities to connect people’s needs with existing provision, and plugging gaps. There are opportunities for independent artists and companies working in the performing arts sector to access short-term advisory sessions, longer-term mentoring, targeted interventions and bespoke training. We initiate relationships that enable the city’s more experienced performing arts producers and practitioners to support those with less experience or working independently and with access to fewer resources.

Here is the round-up of events over the next couple of months.

Please share our Facebook event far and wide – and add yourself as “going” to the event to keep updated with the events happening over the weekend.
