Walking:Holding

Wed 17 – Sat 20 August, various times

What does your town look like from someone else’s perspective? How intimate can you be with someone you’ve just met?

Walking:Holding invites you to walk hand in hand with a series of very different local strangers around nearby streets, parks and alleyways. It is a participatory performance for one audience member at a time, offering a gentle meditation on identity, touch and intimacy in urban public space.

Walking:Holding was first created in Glasgow in 2011 and has since toured extensively across the UK and internationally, working with local participants as performers in each location. A film about the project is being created this summer with support from the Jerwood Charitable Foundation.

“Everyone acknowledged the astute provocation in Cade’s seemingly simple concept, with its flesh and blood challenge to prejudices, and it’s honouring of individuals and their differences.” The Herald

Rosana Cade is an artist with a background in performance. Whilst the form and context of her work varies, it is rooted in a queer discourse and straddles live art and activism. She believes in performance as a space for essential transgression of oppressive societal structures and radical live connection with others. Her work has toured across the UK and internationally to great acclaim. She is also the co-founder of //BUZZCUT// festival, Glasgow.

  • Covid-19 restrictions

    There is currently an easing of restrictions in relation to education, hospitality, galleries, leisure and entertainment.

    Out of the Blue have consequently re-opened for appropriately social distanced and much needed conviviality and activity.

    We are now bringing back events, classes, workshops, and exhibitions in line with Scottish Government guidelines.

    Monday – Friday 10am – 4pm

  • Donate

    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.
