OOTB doesn’t just sit in the community – we help create it. OOTB was 25 in 2019. 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.
So we are asking all of our supporters to help if they can, and in whatever way they can. We know that many of you will have nothing to spare, but if you can make a donation, however big or small, it will help us in ensuring that Out of the Blue is here for another 25 years, doors open and welcoming everyone who needs a place to do their thing.
