Art27 Scotland

We are not-for-profit Community Interest Company working in the Southside area of Edinburgh. We are based around Article 27 of the Declaration of Human Rights, which states that everyone has the right to access culture in their community. 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.

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.
