Mission

Edinburgh Palette is a community of makers, designers and artists, working alongside charities, creative enterprises and small businesses. This community has steadily grown in St Margaret’s House, a former office block disregarded by many for its “neo-brutalist” architecture.

In St Margaret’s House, the charity has created an inclusive hub where artists, craftspeople, community groups and businesses share space, interact and exchange ideas, while providing a diverse programme of public events and exhibitions.

Its guiding mission is to provide studio artists, entrepreneurs and community organisations with low cost studio space and unique, organic opportunities for collaboration. In 2016, the charity intends to extend its reach further with new sites and partnerships, on local, national and international levels.

Edinburgh Palette has a broad range of expertise in the fine and the applied arts, urban regeneration, studio provision, community engagement, gallery exhibitions and public events.

The business model is robust, proven and repeatable. Edinburgh Palette is committed to increasing the sustainability of its operations, and fully integrates environmental sustainability into its business model. You can read our full Sustainability Policy online.
