  • Covid-19 restrictions

    From 26th April there was easing of restrictions in relation to education, hospitality, galleries, retail, services – but indoor numbers are restricted.

    Out of the Blue have consequently re-opened for appropriately social distanced conviviality and activity from Monday 26th April.

    As things stand, from 17th May more events will be allowed, with currently unspecified capacity constraints. We will bring back our events, classes, workshops, and exhibitions when safe to do so.

    Full statement from Out of the Blue Arts and Education Trust.

  • Cafe Opening Hours

    Monday – Friday 10.00 – 16.00

  • Donate

    Over the course of 2021 Out of the Blue will continue to offer opportunities for artists and members of the community to learn, participate and earn income.

    We use the space we have developed in 6 buildings in Edinburgh for studios, workshops, classes, projects, exhibitions, social enterprises, events, clubs, music making, markets, a cafe and more.

    Our all year round activity helps create the culture of the city, supporting the local economy and having positive social impact for the thousands of individuals and organisations we work with.

    We would humbly accept a financial donation, however small, in support of our work.
