Out of the Blue Arts and Education Trust is based in the Out of the Blue Drill Hall in Dalmeny Street, Edinburgh.

Our vision is that Edinburgh becomes a creative, participative city in which everyone is able to access the spaces and resources they require to pursue their own creativity, no matter who they are and what form it may take.

Our mission is to provide affordable and appropriate spaces, resources, projects and opportunities for the residents of Edinburgh to be creative. We seek to make this diversity of creativity more visible and in doing so, support the creation of cultural, social and economic value within the city.

Out of the Blue Arts and Education Trust is a Company Limited by Guarantee with charitable status with two trading subsidiaries, The Bongo Club Ltd and Out of the Blue Productions.

Out of the Blue create jobs and opportunities as a social enterprise financed through trading, investment and loans.

July 2017 News

July sees the transformation of space at the Drill Hall, from Leith Moves performance to exhibition space. As part of this year’s Retina Festival, we look forward to hosting the The Royal Photographic Society’s International Print Exhibition (11th-21st), the longest-running exhibition of its kind in the world. It provides a fascinating insight into the range and diversity of today’s photography and for the first time in the exhibition’s long history, all four medal winners are women.
