Out of the Blue aspire to provide space for as many people as possible to be creative. Property prices in Edinburgh means we often rely on partnerships with those who recognise the value of our initiatives and enterprises. We are at a pivotal milestone moment for our endeavours to further develop Out of the Blue Abbeymount Studios as a sustainable Craft Centre of excellence for the community. As well as accommodating many internationally acclaimed artists, Abbeymount Studios offers artists and organisations such as Out of the Blueprint the chance to fully utilise the teaching and production facilities. 

Social Enterprise is at the heart of Out of the Blue initiatives and the Drill Hall Cafe Cook School has so far diverted almost a ton of potential food waste to produce pickles and jams. The cafe is now looking to employ a young person with an interest in food production and distribution as a Kickstart Cook School Assistant

Thank you for your support.

    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.
