For the last year we have been working with web developers Kin to create an online, searchable database of rehearsal and meeting spaces in Edinburgh. We believe this will provide a vital new resource, making it easier for Edinburgh’s performing artists to create their work in the city throughout the year.
We are delighted to be launching the new website in July 2018 – epad.space – which has been developed in response to feedback gathered from our network last year. The site is not a booking platform, but it holds relevant information about a wide range of venues and contains contact details for each venue or space.
We have compiled these listings from our own knowledge and from information gathered from our network, but this is by no means exhaustive. So, if you have a space, or know of one, please let us know and we will add it to the directory. There is no charge to have your venue included in the site.
We are very grateful to Creative Scotland and to the City of Edinburgh Council for funds to enable this project to be developed to this point. City of Edinburgh Council are also funding us to undertake research into the potential for Edinburgh’s empty spaces to be made available to creative artists for short and longer term use. Please join our mailing list to ensure you receive up-to-date news about this initiative.
