OOTB is 20! Programme
Monday 12th - Friday 23rd May 2014
Out of the Blue have been a hot house of creativity since birth; born in a small shop in Edinburgh’s Old Town back in 1994 when to find creative space in Edinburgh was a massive challenge. Created by intrepid and determined young artists, who having seen what was possible in the cities of mainland Europe, returned home to a commercially rich and creatively poor city.
Their dreams, supported by the principles and commitment of many, many people have now carried OOTB into our twentieth glorious year! Thousands of people now arrive at the OOTB Drill Hall for studios, classes, workshops, markets, projects, events, festivals and to visit the vibrant Cafe. OOTB will showcase our contribution to the culture of Edinburgh throughout the rest of 2014, starting off with the Bongo Lives/OOTB is 20 festival throughout April and May, featuring live music, film, exhibitions and performance at the Bongo Club and the Out of the Blue Drill Hall.
