    Our cafe and studios are currently open. We have been adopting and enhancing the Scottish Government guidelines and will endeavour to get the whole social enterprise back on track, as and when it is safe to do so. 

    We are in dialogue with organisations who are adapting socially distanced classes and workshops to fit our beautiful spaces.

    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.
