The Sideshow

Wednesday 21st - Saturday 24th August 2019

Omawick. A small town on the edge of a big town. A place with a rich history and a strong community spirit. But recently times have been hard and change is needed. The Fair is coming. Change is coming. But is it the change that the community wants? Who speaks for Omawick and what will be left behind once the Fair has moved on?

Inspired by the current Save Leith Walk campaign, The Sideshow continues the successful partnership between Active Inquiry and Strange Town, this year in collaboration with All or Nothing. It is part of the Displaced project exploring gentrification and regeneration in Leith and beyond.

    Over the course of 2024 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.
