Art27@Southside is a partnership between Art27, Southside Community Centre (SSCC) and the City of Edinburgh Council (CEC) to employ artists as catalysts for the reactivation of a traditional community centre. We aim to transform it into a vibrant cultural hub which is relevant, inclusive, reflective and driven by everyone, including the many ethnically diverse communities in its neighbourhood. Everyone has the right to fully and freely participate in the cultural life of their community and Art27@Southside aims to make this happen.

The creative practitioners taking part in this project are:

  • Robert Motyka
  • Robert Rae
  • Ghazi Hussain
  • Zaki El-Salahi
  • Saber Bamatraf
  • Elaine Cheng
  • Laleh Sherkat
