About Art27 Scotland
At Art27 Scotland we agree with Article 27 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which states that ‘everyone has the right to freely participate in the cultural life of the community, and to enjoy the arts’.
Art 27 Scotland is focused on exploring the powerful and sometimes conflicting relationship between our shared human and cultural rights.
We are a not-for-profit Community Interest Company working in the Southside area of Edinburgh. We’re committed to empowering artists and their communities. We’re creating a vibrant, democratic, local social movement that opposes racism by celebrating the many cultures of the Southside.
We’re doing this by drawing artists together into a collective that enhances the lives of all Southsiders.
At Art27 Scotland we want to celebrate our connectedness to the rest of the world. Through art we want to stimulate a broad, democratic discussion relating to the rights of artistic expression, cultural participation and cultural democracy.
We welcome everyone, from visual artists, writers, performers and musicians through to socially engaged and interdisciplinary practitioners to join us in collective cultural action.
