Service Description

Artlink want to learn more about the potential of art within communities, how it can enhance individual lives, how it helps raise awareness when something isn’t working the way it should or how it can encourage us to look at issues from a different perspective.

Curious Routes

Arts Access

Artlink also offers practical support so people can get involved and work with venues to increase opportunities to enjoy the arts. Arts Access links people who want to discover and enjoy the arts in Edinburgh. Members go to a wide variety of events at theatres, galleries, museums, cinemas, historic buildings, sculpture parks etc. Arts Access provides information about what’s on, books tickets, matches members with volunteers who would like to accompany them and then organises transport. It’s a door-to-door service that helps people participate in arts.
