The Forest is… a registered charity, an arts and community project space, an art gallery, a café, a performance space, recording studio, rehearsal room, darkroom, screen printing studio and publishing venue. Powered by the enthusiasm and dedication of hardworking, generous and committed volunteers, it’s been a vivid, vibrant part of Edinburgh’s creative scene for over a decade. It continually offers grassroots support for the arts and creative projects, as well as a place for people to meet, talk, listen, watch, share ideas, make stuff, argue. And eat great burritos.
It is essential that places like the Forest exist in our cities.
EUS (Edinburgh University Settlement), the previous landlord of the current Forest venue was recently declared bankrupt. This led to the immediate and devastating closure of the Roxy Art House. The Forest doesn’t want to go the same way. An awesome fundraising campaign has begun to buy the current building for the Forest, and to continue to run it as an autonomous art space. Supporters of the Forest across the city, the UK and internationally, are mobilising to organise events and ensure that the Forest continues.
