September 2018 News

Thursday 30th August 2018

OOTB doesn’t just sit in the community – we create it.  Throughout our history we have delivered a huge range of creative projects in collaboration with many thousands of people and multiple communities from across Edinburgh. We have created space for our work in a city where space is extremely hard to come by. Our work is educational and enterprising, delivering tangible benefits for everyone involved.

OOTB initiates projects and opportunities that reach every part of our communities, from young to old, from the expert to the beginner. For many of our participants our activities are their first exposure to the arts. We are proud to say that they are rarely their last. Indeed, many of our participants go on to develop an enduring relationship with our venues and activities.  

We also work extensively with people who are ‘hard to reach’ by traditional methods of engagements and structures. We receive no core funding.

To help us reach the grand age of 25 in 2019 and begin the next chapter of opportunities we would humbly accept a financial donation, however small.

    Over the course of 2020 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.
