The Number Shop: artspace & studios

Spotted on facebook earlier a nice SummerhallTV video of a good artspace close to where I live on Edinburgh’s Southside. Artist Alistair Grant is the self-starter director, and he talks candidly about his motivations and tactics in wresting a pretty extraordinary empty space from the council. It’s the way many great things start!

I’ve enjoyed The Number Shop exhibitions, and it’s a definite plus having interesting spaces for artists to use in Edinburgh (as Alistair says in the video) and even better when they’re five minutes away from where you live….

Here’s the video. I recommend finding them on facebook and trying to get along to one of their openings – welcoming and civilised affairs!
