Creative Edinburgh’s Summer Party is back…
Can you believe it's been a year since we all made our way to Whitespace for our 2019 summer shindig with artist and designer Dominic Wilcox?!
This year, we're continuing to embrace this new digital events world as we bring you our Summer Party 2020 - live-streamed via Facebook.
You don't need a Facebook account to join - simply visit our Facebook page on the night and our live stream will be accessible for all.
Join us on Thursday 16th July from 6pm for an evening of entertainment as we celebrate the opening of applications for this year’s Creative Edinburgh Awards.
We'll be sharing all you need to know on how to apply and revealing our incredible Creative Edinburgh Awards 2020 artwork - an exciting collaboration between 10 artists!

TOP TIPS TO ENJOY CE’S SUMMER PARTY
Feeling Screen Fatigue?
Don’t worry! Not all of our performances are visual. Pop it on in the background while you have a stretch, sunbathe (fingers crossed!), cook your dinner, or simply as the soundtrack to your night kicking back and relaxing!
Start a group chat!
Parties are always more fun with your best pals, so gather your friends, colleagues and fellow creatives together virtually with a CE Summer Party chat group and enjoy the event together - but apart!
Have any questions about the Creative Edinburgh Awards?
We won’t have time to answer them during the live stream, but you can comment, email or get in touch after the event and we’ll get back to you!
