Autumn/Winter events – save the dates

We know it feels like summer has barely started but we are already planning EPAD events for the autumn and winter. From surgeries to training to networking, we have a range of opportunities for you from September onwards. Full details and booking information will be confirmed in due course, but please save the dates and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Co-working Days

Our Autumn Co-working Days will take place on: 

  • Thursday 19th September
  • Thursday 31st October
  • Wednesday 4th December

Come and work alongside your colleagues in a warm and friendly place, share a bowl of soup and build your network over a glass of wine at the end of the day.


The next round of EPAD Surgeries will take place on Wednesday 25 September at the Festival Theatre. The surgeries are an opportunity to talk through an issue or challenge with us so we can match you with one of our Advisors for further support and advice. There will be six slots available and booking will open in early September. 


We are planning an autumn of gatherings and we hope you will join us to learn, share and enjoy.

  • Thursday 19th September, 5.15pm-6.30pm, Festival Theatre. An opportunity to meet some of the team at Capital Theatres, join us after Co-working for an informal Q&A session.
  • Wednesday 23 October, 2.30pm-5.30pm, venue tbc. An afternoon to discuss the question: “How best do we support the creation of new work in Edinburgh?” EPAD will be facilitating the start of a number of conversations between artists, venues, producers and programmers with the aim of creating a strategy for providing R&D opportunities that meet the needs of the city’s performing artists. We hope you will be available to contribute to the discussion.
  • Wednesday 4 December, 6.00pm – 7.30pm, venue tbc. A pre-Christmas social following our our Co-working day. Drinks and light refreshments will be available.

Training seminar – Being a Self-Producing Artist

Wednesday 6 November, 10.00am to 1.00pm, venue tbc.  Our next training event will be a seminar on the experience of the self-producing artist. We know that this is the expectation, or the financial reality, for many independent performing artists. We also know that this sits more comfortably with some artists than with others. Come along and hear from a variety of self-producing artists, and from venues and programmers, about ways to make this approach work for you. 

As always, EPAD events are free and we can pay £25 towards your costs as a carer to make it easier for you to attend.
