Happy New Year. The challenge of providing space for people to work, create, exhibit, perform, eat, drink, dance, teach, learn and socialise continues into 2022!

Out of the Blue generate the majority of our income through trading, including renting affordable spaces to artists, community groups and others, but also through our Drill Hall caféOut of the Blueprint studio, and the Bongo Club which are integral parts of our social enterprise. We look forward to both continuing to adapt what we offer to the ever changing circumstances and to welcoming you to our spaces.

We are looking to recruit a Print Sales and Marketing Assistant to join the Out of the Blueprint team through the UK Government’s Kickstart scheme. This is an exciting opportunity for a young person aged 16 – 24 who is currently in receipt of Universal Credit. The successful applicant will be paid the Real Living Wage.  

Thank you for your support.

The Out of the Blue team

    Over the course of 2022 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.
