WATCH THIS SPACE – ART AUCTION 2011



There will be a high profile auction of contemporary artworks early 2011. Contact auction@theforest.org.uk for further information.



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.

Aaron Wright & The Aprils -Aaron  Wright has had a big year. A triumphant set at Glastonbury was quickly  followed by The Hop Farm, on the bill with Bob Dylan. Aaron Wright &  The Aprils released their debut e.p Beyond a Pale Horse featuring  members of Teenage Fanclub, Camera Obscura and Belle and Sebastian. 



William  Douglas - frontman of bands House of La and The Wheel will show you the  best of what the Edinburgh alt-folk scene is all about.Hailey  Beavis - current contender for best singer-songwriter in Edinburgh?
