November 2018 News

Monday 29th October 2018

Out of the Blueprint runs an inclusive training programme that supports young people aged 16 – 24, including those with additional needs, to develop their self confidence, work place skills and understanding of enterprise through studio training placements and enterprise workshops. 

To this end we work with project partners that include the Thistle Foundation, Children’s and Adolescent Mental Health Service (NHS Lothian), Edinburgh College, and local youth agencies.

We have applied for some funding from the RBS Skills and Opportunities Fund to support 18 young people to undertake traineeships within the studio, and a further 24 young people to undertake creative enterprise workshops. 

We would be very appreciative if you could take a minute to vote for our project HERE.

    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.
