We hope you are all safe and well during this extraordinary and challenging time.
Bookmarket, our pop up bookshop and events space in Waverley Mall is currently closed and the majority of staff are now furloughed. This year ahead was set to be a momentous one for the Fruitmarket, and we were just months away from reopening the redeveloped building and unveiling a new Fruitmarket. Whilst the current crisis has challenged the timing of this project, we are as committed to it as ever and work will resume when it is safe to do so.
We were about to launch a public fundraising campaign for the building, and our Gift Registry is open. If you would like to make a donation by buying a ‘gift’ for us, please do!
Nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of our community.
A NEW FRUITMARKET
The Fruitmarket Gallery has been a key part of Edinburgh’s cultural landscape since 1974. Currently closed for redevelopment, we are getting ready to OPEN OUT as soon as we can – with more space for art; a new space for cross artform collaborations; better facilities for all; and a new learning studio.
We’d love for you to play your part in building a new future for the Fruitmarket, and to help you do that we have now launched our unique GIFT REGISTRY where anyone who has taken something away from their own experience of the Fruitmarket can select a virtual gift they’d like to give back in return.
In these strange times and with a lot of home schooling going on, we have gathered some of the art activities we created for children and young people inspired by past exhibitions at The Fruitmarket Gallery.
