BUNKER / by Esaf Commitee

#ESAF2017 is well underway and as we draw closer and closer to the Edinburgh Student Arts Festival, we knew it was time for us to kick off the festivities! On the 26th and 27th of November, our #ESAFBunker, a  creatives’ welcome event, was hosted at Edinburgh College of Art. This was a space for our Creatives to come together and get serious about their practice!

Cute nametags were made, tough questions asked, workshops were held and information was provided about the upcoming festival.

We had some amazing workshops that we held with some of our partners. Our creatives had an amazing selection to choose from ranging from a lighting and sound session, held by Staged For Live, to an Intellectual Property information session, given by Alan Page-Duffy from Pop Up! Scotland and many more.

We got some great feedback from our fantastic creatives and asked them some pretty tough questions including, ‘what vision do you have for your creative future?’ and ‘what questions do you have about your creative practice presently?’ To which we received some integral information about what creatives really need both now and in the future.

Our ESAF Bunker was held to give our participating creatives all the information they needed and a little bit more.#ESAFBunker gave Creatives a chance to meet one another, mingle with the ESAF team and acquire key information regarding the festival fundamentals. All of speakers were there to give all those in attendance a sense of what is still to come with ESAF and the 2017 festival. We hope all who came left as inspired and invigorated as we do.

 

It’s time to bunker down to business!
