Overview

Collective is a contemporary visual arts organisation that brings people together around the production and presentation of new work. Established in 1984, Collective has been fundamental to the cultural vitality of Scotland by supporting new work by artists who are at a pivotal stage in their development. We provide artists with the opportunity to make new work and audiences the chance to see it here first. Our programme of exhibitions, walks, events and off-site projects presents contemporary art in all its diversity. We create opportunities for participation, mutual learning and dialogue by opening out processes of art production, connecting with other fields and encouraging new developments. Collective is currently redeveloping the City Observatory complex on Calton Hill, Edinburgh, due to open fully to the public in 2017. Working closely with artists and engaging with our locality, through the acts of looking, thinking and producing, we are developing a new kind of City Observatory.

Must do if you like art, and definitely try it if you dont like art...you may learn something and end up liking it! Perfect location. The exhibition I visit was Crippled Symmetries by Beatrice Gibson from 30.07.15 - 04.10.15 Just amazing!

Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to
malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton
have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a
mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village
found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything
but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street;
even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and
art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The
