As part of the services the Fringe Society offers to all those taking part in the festival, the Fringe Central Events Programme delivers a series of professional development workshops, seminars, discussions and creative labs throughout the month of August.
In 2017, we worked with 58 partners in order to deliver a comprehensive and diverse programme of over 120 events. The programme’s overall aims are to; develop skills, expand perceptions, build networks, advance careers and aid in the health and well-being of all those involved in the Fringe.
There are a number of recurring programme sections which are detailed here: https://www.edfringe.com/learn/news-and-events/call-for-entries-2018-fringe-central-events-programme, however we are always open to discussing additional/ad-hoc sections which could be incorporated.
In line with our continued commitment to support participants in an open and impartial manner, all events presented within Fringe Central must:
• Be free to attend
• Be open to anyone taking part in the Fringe
• Not be used as a promotional tool for any Fringe show
Deadline for submissions of interest: 5pm, 7th March 2018
Programmed events will be required to provide final copy and artwork by 5pm on 27th March 2018.

About Creative Carbon Scotland:
Creative Carbon Scotland is a partnership of arts organisations working to put culture at the heart of a sustainable Scotland. We believe cultural and creative organisations have a significant influencing power to help shape a sustainable Scotland for the 21st century.
In 2011 we worked with partners Festivals Edinburgh, the Federation of Scottish Threatre and Scottish Contemporary Art Network to support over thirty arts organisations to operate more sustainably.
We are now building on these achievements and working with over 70 cultural organisations across Scotland in various key areas including carbon management, behavioural change and advocacy for sustainable practice in the arts.
Our work with cultural organisations is the first step towards a wider change. Cultural organisations can influence public behaviour and attitudes about climate change through:
Changing their own behaviour;
Communicating with their audiences;
Engaging the public’s emotions, values and ideas.
