Summer School & Intensive Programmes

Every year Collective invites artists, thinkers, writers and practitioners from various disciplines to deliver a multi-day programme of talks, walks, workshops, film screenings and activities around a central theme.

Collective’s annual school builds a temporary space in Edinburgh for critical dialogue, practical experiments and learning that is open to anyone interested in the production of contemporary art.


Unfortunately, we are unable to review unsolicited proposals. Please check if you are eligible for our Satellites Programme, which is recruited annually by open application in the spring.
