September 2013 News

1st September 2013

It was such a great pleasure for us to host the Forest Fringe ’13. The subtlety and charm of the installations and performances were an ideal match for the OOTB Drill Hall as a base for working artists. Goodbye, well done and huge thanks to all who made it happen.

The drill hall will now return to hosting our year round programme of quality creative opportunities.  The Hip Kipper serves up a vintage Bruncheon (14th) with mellow jazz and swing, Renata Uznanska’s exhibition it’s all about flowers offers a chance to see nature in all its amazing colourful vibrancy, whilst the Vintage Kilo Sale (21st) offers the chance to buy bags of vintage clothes. Further quality rummaging opportunities are on offer at the monthly Flea Markets (31st August, 28th September). All supported by delicious food from the OOTB Drill Hall cafe.

We welcome classes back for the start of a new term. OOTB Drill Hall residents Strange Town Theatre Company enable young people to fulfil their creative potential, offering quality theatre provision for 5-25 year olds throughout the year.

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

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

    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.
