Over​ 30 hours of creative activities​ are on offer each week, most with a family focus, alongside a wide range of other events such as exhibitions, dance shows, circus skills workshops, community theatre, poetry readings and film clubs. We are also home to Muirhouse Link Up and ​Tinderbox Orchestra​.

Through partnership working and ongoing local and city consultation the award-winning centre, opened in 2002 acts as the cultural centre of the community, providing a safe, enjoyable and creative environment for people of all ages to relax and develop within.

Our development plans

NEA has been at the heart of North Edinburgh for over 20 years offering a safe, comfortable and creative space for people of all ages, in what can be a harsh physical and social environment. The area is growing and undergoing major redevelopment and we need to redevelop our building to better serve our local community.
