Now in its 6th year Made In Scotland—the curated showcase of music, theatre and dance performed at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe—will involve 29 companies and artists, who produce their work in the region.
The initiative has received £590,000 in funding from the Scottish Government and provides an opportunity for national and international promoters to see Scottish work.
In addition to live performances TalkFest 2014 will involve a programme of workshops and discussions.
Kath M Mainland, Chief Executive, Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society said: “The Made In Scotland showcase is a crucial platform for Scottish artists at the Fringe, the world’s largest arts festival and one of the most significant arts markets in the world.
"Made In Scotland is a real launchpad for Scottish companies at The Fringe. It allows them direct access to influential contacts in the media and arts industry as well as the opportunity to present their work alongside many international counterparts.
"Made In Scotland goes a long way to raise the profile of these Scottish artists by allowing them to take full advantage of the unparalleled opportunity to have their work seen by promoters and presenters from around the world.”
Made In Scotland is a partnership between the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society, Creative Scotland, the Federation of Scottish Theatre and Scottish Music Centre.
