Be Part of our New St Margaret’s House Fanzine

What is a doctor without stethoscope, a carpenter without a hammer or an astronaut without a spacesuit?

We all use different tools every day. Without them we couldn’t be able to do our work the same way.

Which tool do you use the most? We want to know the story behind it.

Send a picture of it and tell us what you use it for.

A new project is emerging inside Edinburgh Palette: We want to show the world the magic of the building in an interactive magazine form full of different stories happening in the community.

All of your tools help Edinburgh Palette to be what it is.

Send the story of your tool to helena@edinburghpalette.co.uk.

Deadline: 7th of April to collaborate with the publication!

Artists Call for Submissions: Scottish Identity (Post Brexit)


Scottish Identity

Peter J Scott, No Man’s Land, 2015, (Poppy series), mixed media drawing over print collageMarch 31 – April 20, 2017

23 Atholl Crescent
Edinburgh, EH3 8HQ

“Where is the coward that would not dare to fight for such a land as Scotland,” Sir Walter Scott asked in the 18th Century. Yet, what does it mean to be Scottish in 2017? Does one have to be born in Scotland to feel Scottish? In a particularly tense period following Brexit, the possibility of another independence referendum, and aftershocks from the United States election, Scottish Identity asks artists to examine their own views of Scotland and her people. We welcome artists of any background to explore their own associations in the aim of presenting a body of work that exposes the nuanced dimensions of this unique country. Works may directly engage with social issues, but they can also address themes such as the natural landscape, historic traditions, personal experience, notions of ancestry, patriotism and politics.
