Ethos

EMBASSY is an artist-led organisation based in Edinburgh. We programme exhibitions, performances, residencies, and events in our gallery space, online and off-site. We aim to support and showcase artists and cultural practitioners who produce experimental, critical and timely work.

EMBASSY was founded in 2004, and since then has been run by a voluntary, rolling committee. The committee takes responsibility for curatorial projects and all aspects of running the gallery. Additionally, they are also trustees of the charity, who take responsibility for its strategic direction and financial management. At present, we are reflecting upon the social, economic and political landscape in which we operate and the governance structure of the organisation is under review.

EMBASSY is Company Limited by Guarantee, with charitable status.
Company Number: 259872 OSCR Charity No: SC035780

What we do

EMBASSY commissions artists and cultural practitioners to produce new work. This includes artworks, exhibitions, performances, screenings, and dialogical events. We offer an artist fee and a production budget to those we commission.

EMBASSY also hosts artists residencies in our gallery space and online, and supports our Members through opportunities to exhibit, perform and make connections with others.
