  • Covid-19 restrictions

    Edinburgh is in COVID Protection Level 4 with current restrictions essentially returning us to a position similar to the lockdown of last March.

    Our buildings will consequently be temporarily closed to the public until further notice, but we very much hope to see you again in the not too distant future.

    Stay safe and well.

    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.
