Edinburgh College of Art’s Masters degree show is an annual contribution to Edinburgh Art Festival and is a showcase of work from over 50 postgraduate students from the School of Art, School of Design and the Edinburgh School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture (ESALA).

The Festival programme includes ‘Here, Right Now: Art Writing Readings – a selection of Edinburgh-based art writers presenting new works’ after their contribution to Cooper Gallery’s Studio Jamming sessions as part of Generation and the workshop ‘Introducing the Artist Rooms Research Partnership’ between National Galleries of Scotland and Tate.
