GLOW Festival 2021

A celebration of creative student resilience

Every year students from our Creative Industries courses showcase their talents with a number of unique performances and exhibitions at venues across the city as part of Glow Festival. 

This year, due to the ongoing pandemic, Glow is going virtual!  

While we may not be able to take over iconic venues across Edinburgh in 2021, we’ll be shining a virtual spotlight on students’ creative talents during a two-week showcase that includes projects in music, theatre, dance, photography, sculpture, illustration, and many other areas within the creative industries with brand new work, as well as taking a look at work from years gone by. 

Despite the challenges and difficult circumstances over the past year, our students have demonstrated resilience and produced some amazing work! We are excited to be celebrating this and showcasing their work during Glow Festival 2021.

Virtual Glow Festival 2020 will be happening from 7 – 18 June 2021.

Join us on our Facebook page and YouTube channel from 7 June.
