At Rhubaba we aim to foster a critical and supportive community of artists, within which self-organised activities such as meetings and crit are enabled and space can be used productively and imaginatively. We offer 14 studio spaces, housing up to 20 practicing artists at any one time. All studio artists have access to the gallery space between exhibitions as well as access to shared resources such as tools and A/V equipment, kitchen area and communal office with desktop computer, printer and scanner. Prices range between £62 and £160, inclusive of all utilities, such as electricity, wi–fi internet, administration costs, building maintenance and rates. Please join our mailing list to keep up to date on studio availability in the future.
Update on 25 Arthur Street
After a ten year tenancy on Arthur Street, Leith, it is with heavy hearts that we are leaving our gallery and studio premises due to the landlords futures plans for the site.
While the doors are closing on Arthur Street, we want you all to know that we are not closing down! Rhubaba will continue to support and showcase artists in Edinburgh and across Scotland, through our yearly programme of workshops, residencies, events and exhibitions. Any plans for future in person events can be adapted or will use alternative spaces as venues in Edinburgh. We are also currently in dialogue with our studio holders, partners and other stakeholders about future plans for Rhubaba.
We are immensely grateful to you all for supporting Rhubaba, and hope that we can welcome you all back to a new building soon. If you would like to, you can support Rhubaba at this time by raising awareness of our situation or through donations to help us secure a new building.
