EPAD Upcoming Events

Edinburgh Performing Arts Development (EPAD) is a capacity building project for Edinburgh’s independent performing artists and producers that provides support by identifying and promoting  opportunities to connect people’s needs with existing provision, and plugging gaps. There are opportunities for independent artists and companies working in the performing arts sector to access short-term advisory sessions, longer-term mentoring, targeted interventions and bespoke training. We initiate relationships that enable the city’s more experienced performing arts producers and practitioners to support those with less experience or working independently and with access to fewer resources.

Here is the round-up of events over the next couple of months.

Studio Share Available

A one-window space available to share.
Ideally I am looking for another 2 part-time artists to share the studio space with, specifically painters and/or artists.
At the moment I am working on organising the space – tidying things and creating space for other people coming in. I have quite a large variety of artists tools in the studio which I am happy to share – maybe having some kind of work diary, so a note of what has been used can be recorded.
At the  moment in the studio there are 2 solid  wooden tables. The less deep one is mine, I’m happy to leave my desk clear of work and for other people to use when I am not in the studio, I also keep 2 medium sized fold up tables for extra workspace which are for use.
The other person in the studio at the moment prefers to keep her table space as her own, and does not want this used communally. A shelving unit is available for storage, as well as a large wooden cabinet.

I want people to be aware I’m a wheelchair user, so access in room is also required.

As it is not huge studio space, I think it would be best if the people I (we) share with would be open to the idea of a rota system.

The sort of people I would be looking to share with would be responsible, respectful team players, communicative and fun loving.

If you are interested or require more information, please contact: burneyblu@hotmail.co.uk

Autumn in the Neverending Glen

This summer a number of artists from Edinburgh Palette were invited to create site-specific works for The Neverending Glen – an immersive art trail featuring installations, sculptures, performances and events taking place during the Kelburn Garden Party. Now in it’s second year, the Neverening Glen aims to enhance the audience’s experience of the amazing Kelburn Estate with it’s magical and ancient forestry, mesmerizing views over the Atlantic and astounding location on the west coast.

This year’s Neverending Glen saw its collaboration grow through a co-curation between Sophia Lindsay Burns from art hub Edinburgh Palette and The Too Much Fun Club. Many of the installations still remain on the glen to be viewed by visitors to the Kelburn Country Estate.

Sophia paid a visit to the Glen earlier this month to check on how the artworks were doing. See some of the photos below and for more photos visit the Facebook page (and don’t forget to give us your “like”)

Alice Boyle visits the Wednesday Advanced Art Class

Alice Boyle visits the Wednesday Advanced Art ClassDear all,

Last session we looked again at the work of the Scottish painter Alice Boyle but this week we had the lady herself to answer our questions. She spoke about how she worked and worked with the children as they turned their designs into paintings. She showed us layering colour and how to work with our hands as well as brushes. We all agreed it was much more fun having the actual artist with us, if a little intimidating. The wee artists were a little shy and over awed but deeply impressed! more
