Art27 Scotland

Everyone has the Right freely to participate in the cultural life of the community, and to enjoy the arts…
Article 27 of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

WE ARE: A not-for-profit cultural organisation based in Edinburgh, Scotland. Our focus is to create art that takes its inspiration from and highlights our shared human rights.

WE BELIEVE: Cultural rights are indivisible from human rights. We explore what Cultural Rights mean in practice through artist led, community driven projects. Our anchor for cultural rights is based on the definitions outlined in the Fribourg Declaration

Our Current Projects

Art27 Scotland’s first engagement project is the Southside Collective. We define the Southside as the area of Edinburgh within fifteen minutes’ walking distance of our partner organisation the Southside Community Centre, an area made home by a vibrant international community. Art27 Scotland is working with the Management Committee and the Edinburgh City Council to reopen, encourage in new users and develop facilities to support current users.
