Lyra Commissions – Q&A for Artists

Venue: Artspace, 11 Harewood Road, Edinburgh, EH16 4NT
Prices: Free

Are you interested in collaborating with Lyra’s Young Artists? Come to this Q&A event to get some handy tips for their next Artist callout.

This Spring, Lyra is presenting their third annual Young Artists festival, Bright & Wild. The festival features four new commissions created by professional artists in collaboration with Lyra’s Young Artists groups. These new works were commissioned by the children in August 2022 and they’ve been working with their Lead Artists for the past nine months to create their productions.

At this year’s festival, they’re hosting two Q&A sessions for anyone that’s interested in finding out more about Lyra’s unique child-led commissions process. The Q&A panel will be chaired by Lyra’s Engagement Producer and the panel members will include past commission recipients, some of our Young Artists and members of Lyra’s Artistic team.

They’ll share information about the next round of commissions for Bright & Wild 2024, which will be advertised in June 2023. The Q&A will be an opportunity to find out more, ask your burning questions and get some handy application tips from the Lyra team and the Young Artists.

The Q&A discussions will take place after the matinee performances on Saturday 20 May and Saturday 27 May 2023. To book your place at the Q&A, please email

Location: Lyra, Artspace, 11 Harewood Road, Edinburgh, EH16 4NT
