July News

Thursday 30th June 2022

Out of the Blue have always aspired to connect our summer initiatives to our own and our collaborators’ all-year-round work. Out of the Blueprint is a social enterprise providing traineeships, residencies, exhibitions and educational projects, whilst supporting young people to pursue their own creative work. Out of the Blueprint present a Print Expo as a week-long festival of print from Saturday 9th – Saturday 16th July. Print Expo offers the chance to browse and buy work from some of Scotland’s most exciting young artists; see an exhibition of incredible brand-new artwork; and learn how to print with Out of the Blueprint’s very own in-house riso print expert!

After the great success of last summer’s project, Out of the Blueprint and our Drill Hall creative collaborators are once again running a week-long programme of free arts activities including aerial, drama and comic-making. Now is the time to sign up for PALS! – for young people aged 11-13 in the Leith area who have – or are just about to – make the step up to big school!

Thank you for your support.

    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.
