Rohanne Udall and Paul Hughes

Imaginary Festivals Project

Imaginary Festivals Project
6-17 August
Drill Hall Cafe

A performance starts when you first hear about it, and ends when you last think about it.

The Imaginary Festivals Project is a collective game of make believe, an evolving installation, a review sheet and a fictitious venue, situated at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Join artists Rohanne Udall and Paul Hughes daily in the Forest Fringe cafe where they and a community of artists and audiences will be writing, collecting and mapping a festival of imagined and impossible work. We invite you to come and help us write the art that might never or can’t ever be, collected in a festival periodical of reviews, found imagery, and interweaving narratives.

As part of this project, a printed programme of work will be curated for an imaginary venue in collaboration with the Forest Fringe.

    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.
