Hurrah! On the 12th November we celebrated the amazing creative talent in this fine city through our Creative Edinburgh Awards and 2nd birthday party. With over 960+ members and a programme packed to the seams, Creative Edinburgh has grown into an inclusive and supportive community, and that's all because of you. Our awards are an opportunity to highlight the individuals and businesses that are inventive, inspiring and work extremely hard to make a difference.
This year we are proud to be working with Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH) and we will be donating profits from our ticket sales in support of the essential work that they do. With special performances from FOUND, Jesus H Foxx and Esther Swift, tasty 'Creative Edinbeer' to wet your whistle, piñatas and party games galore.
Our Awards were open to all creative & techies based in Edinburgh, the Creative Edinburgh Awards highlight the inspiring, cultural and economic contributions many have made to this fine city. A big thank you to this year's sponsors.
