In 1994 Trudy Gibson and I hatched an idea to open a gallery space in the old town of Edinburgh. Out of the Blue evolved, quite quickly into a performance and experimental arts space specialising in cross-disciplinary arts, outgrew its first home and moved into an old bus depot which included studios, workshop space, performance venue (The Bongo Club) and gallery. Now sited in three venues across the city – OOTB Arts & Education Trust is still alive and kicking! See website for more details and come along to the celebrations on 17 May.
