STIRart is...

STIRart is an environmental and community aware platform for the visual arts in Edinburgh, which targets a broad audience from professional artists to the general public. The objective of STIRart is to encourage the potential of developing artists and to promote the work of existing artists, whilst cultivating the artistic interest and participation of the wider community.

STIRart encourages the use of waste, scrap and recycled materials in the pursuit of artistic endeavours and we are dedicated to finding business solutions to sustain our activities without recourse to external funding.

STIRart and the environment

STIRart promotes the use of waste into art, providing opportunities for artists to contribute towards STIRnetwork's goal of encouraging the sustainable use of resources. With our exhibitions, STIRart provides an opportunity for artists to explore the potential of waste products as an artisit's raw materials, and encourages them to innovate accordingly.

STIRart and the community

As well as exhibitions, STIRart also runs workshops to encourage the creative sides of various communities and community groups, and to explore their artisitic potential without adding to the burden of waste.
