About Edinburgh Student Arts Festival

ESAF is a social enterprise that initially provided emerging creatives with a platform to showcase their work to the public. We have since evolved into an organisation that provides a space for anyone to give creativity a go.

ESAF is Scotland’s first ever youth-led multi-arts festival that brings together all five higher and further education institutions across Edinburgh. Originally supported by the University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh University Students's Association (EUSA), Queen Margaret University and Queen Margaret University Students' Association (EUSA), the festival was set up by the President of Edinburgh University Students' Association (EUSA) 2014-2015 and embodies the values of student-led enterprise.

The Festival takes place in several Edinburgh venues.
