Culture: Building Resilient Communities
The 3rd Edinburgh International Culture Summit runs from 24 to 26 August 2016. The Edinburgh International Culture Summit brings together Culture Ministers, artists, thinkers and arts leaders from around the world to share ideas, expertise and best practice, with a view to inspiring positive change in cultural policy and investment.
The theme of Summit 2016, ‘Culture: Building Resilient Communities’, reflects the Summit’s strong belief in the vital role that culture plays in the life of any successful community.
Holyrood is the home of Scotland's Parliament. The award-winning, innovative building is constructed from a mixture of steel, oak and granite and was designed by one of the world's premier architects Enric Miralles. More than 350,000 people a year typically visit Holyrood. Many come to see the Debating Chamber and Committee Rooms - and the key political debates of the day that take place within them. Others come to see the visiting exhibitions or to take part in an event, such as the annual Festival of Politics.
Partners for 2016
The Edinburgh International Culture Summit is a collaboration between partner organisations – the Scottish Government, the UK Government, the British Council, the Edinburgh International Festival and Scottish Parliament.
