Emerging Producers Development Programme

Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society

Deadline: 15 May 2017 at 17:00

The Emerging Producers Development Programme is a creative and professional development programme designed for emerging UK based producers interested in using the Fringe as a platform for their ongoing career development.

The Programme is run by the Fringe Society, supported by the British Council, and aims to support emerging UK producers expand their professional networks and develop their learning and creative insight at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.​

Who’s it for?

The programme is open to UK based independent producers working across all disciplines and genres of the performing arts, who would not qualify for Arts Industry accreditation through the Fringe Society’s Arts Industry Office.

Both the Fringe Society and British Council are committed to a policy of equal opportunity and are keen to reflect the diversity of UK society. The Fringe Society is committed to maintaining the open-access policy of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and so we welcome applications from all sectors of the arts community.
