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 Festival was virtual. 

While we were not able to take over iconic venues across Edinburgh in 2021, we shone a virtual spotlight on students’ creative talents during a two-week showcase that included 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 were excited to celebrate this by showcasing their work during Glow Festival 2021.

You can catch up on performances from Glow Festival 2021 in the videos below or on our YouTube channel.
