Culture export and the Culture Diary: Interviews at Edinburgh Festival 2019

The Culture Diary spent a few days in Edinburgh for the opening of the British Council Edinburgh Showcase 2019.

Taking place 19-24 August, we had a presence at the trade fair on Wednesday 21 August, promoting the use of the Culture Diary to a large amount of UK culture organisations also presenting, as well as international programmers invited by the British Council to attend.

We captured some interviews with some of these cultural organisations and programmers, along with interviews with the key people behind two of the British Showcase pieces, 'The Claim' and 'Cotton Fingers'. We also caught up with Farnham Maltings about their collaboration with us in Hong Kong, and a selection of Culture Diary members plus a few public vox pops.

Watch our Edinburgh playlist here.

You can watch one of the videos below featuring Company Wayne McGregor telling us how the Culture Diary has benefitted them, and Marlborough Theatre on taking queer art international.
