Where We Live & What We Live For

Where We Live & What We Live For
12-13 August 9.15pm
Drill Hall

In 2009 we celebrated my father’s seventy-fifth birthday with a brace of shows at Forest Fringe. This year I asked him: “What do you want to do for your eightieth?” and he said “Well, I’d quite like to do the show again”, so we’re doing it. Join us as we raise again the toast: ‘To dead dogs, dead children, dead lovers, dead heroes and how good it is to be alive’.

This revival of original Where We Live & What We Live For, precedes a new work supported by Compass Live Art (Leeds), and BAC (London), work-in-progress showings from September ’14.

    Over the course of 2024 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.
