We are in an old university building and it still has the atmosphere and the aesthetics of that. It’s working brilliantly because we have more room than we need and that invites all kinds of creative thinking and creative ideas.
Edinburgh is the second city of culture in the UK, one of the great capitals in Europe – very rare for spaces like this to become available. It’s not about making money, it’s about communicating with people, it’s about a dialogue, it’s about being able to perform and talk and paint and illustrate and… about big questions. In my opinion I’d like to think of the arts as being at the intellectual heart of society.
