    Welcome to Sharing Spaces, a new event from Creative Edinburgh, designed for anyone working across the creative industries to problem solve, explore work and seek feedback from peers.


    Each session we'll welcome two presenters with a project to workshop, a pitch to practice or a problem that requires a hive mind to solve - enter youSharing Spaces provides the space and time creatives from across sectors to collaborate, connect and support in an approachable, relaxed and respectful space.


    Spaces are limited, so register now to join the conversation! Interested in presenting at a future session? Read our guidelines here and apply here!


    March's Line Up

    We'll announce presenters ahead of ticket release. Check back here on Wednesday 10 March 2021 to find out more.

    How do Sharing Spaces work?

    Each session invites two presenters to take the reigns for 30 minutes each. They’ll present their idea before posing questions to the group. It’s then over to attendees to share thoughts, respond to queries and lend advice! 

    Sharing Spaces are designed to be a relaxed and informal space for conversation. Each presenter facilitates the conversation, and there is no set rule for discussion. The Creative Edinburgh team on hand to support the behind-the-scenes stuff, otherwise it's over to attendees to explore the topic together. 

    Is it for me?

    Sharing Spaces are designed for creative thinkers, makers, doers or dreamers! Whether you work in the creative industries or have a passion for it, your input is invaluable. 

    Each presenter will post open questions to the group, so whether you have loads to chip in or just listen in on this occasion, it’s a great opportunity to meet others and get inspired.

    What do I have to offer?

    Probably loads! Whatever your background, you’re probably sitting on loads of valuable knowledge and insight that is worth sharing. This is just the space to do it! 

    Whether you’re new to the industry or an expert in your field, have experience in what’s being presented or are entirely new to it, Sharing Spaces are an open, explorative space for creatives to learn, grow and develop together. There are no wrong answers, and everyone’s experience is different. We encourage you to share your two cents, take what is valuable to you and gently set aside what isn’t.

    Interested in presenting?

    For the full details on how presentations work, explore our Guidance & Guidelines PDF, then apply to present via this Google Form. If we receive more applications then spaces, two names are drawn at random from submissions to ensure fair representation and to manage demand.


    Confidentiality

    Sharing Spaces are designed to be an open and honest space for exploration. Chatham House Rules apply to both ideas presented and conversations held - read more on what that means here. We ask everyone to handle conversations respectfully and with kindness at each stage. 

    Accessibility

    This event will have live captions available. If you have any additional requirements as presenter or attendee, please email info@creative-edinburgh.com and we will do our best to accommodate.

    We'd like to thank Edinburgh Performing Arts Development (EPAD) for their advice and support in launching Sharing Sessions. If you work in the performing arts and wish to share an idea with peers from the sector, explore EPAD's Platform events here
