Photo of Collective venue in Edinburgh, photographed by Tom Nolan.


Collective’s unique home on Calton Hill features the historic City Observatory, City Dome, and a new purpose-built exhibition space.

Our programme of exhibitions, walks, and events presents contemporary art in all its diversity. We provide artists with the opportunity to make new work and audiences the chance to see it here first.

By inspiring, engaging with, and learning from the people and groups around us, we aim to contribute to local, national, and international conversations.
