For Collection 3, The Collective exhibited at Out of the Blue, The Drill Hall. With the introduction of three new Showcase members in Ronnie Baxter, Robert Ormerod and Eoin Carey, The Collective further expanded its breadth of talent.
Open since 2004, The Drill Hall is a building of great cultural significance to the Leith community. Careful, sustainable restoration and regeneration has transformed this former military building into a participatory and inclusive arts and cultural centre, with artists' studios, rehearsal and performance arenas, exhibition spaces and a well-reviewed café. The Out of the Blue Drill Hall is a vibrant, fun, and inclusive place, where people can experience all kinds of innovative contemporary arts, enjoy the creative atmosphere, meet, discuss, eat, relax and learn.
