Spaces for Creative Use in Edinburgh

Closing date 1 February 2024

EP Spaces is a network of meanwhile spaces for creative people across Scotland, with new low cost spaces soon available in Edinburgh.

EP Spaces is a national network of affordable meanwhile spaces for creative people, groups, and communities, with over 30 properties currently operating across Scotland. We work with landlords to bring disused shops, offices, and industrial units, back to life with new purpose and vitality, creating buzzing creative spaces in each location. These spaces are mostly used as studios or for presenting work to the public. However, they are also used for rehearsals, events, workshops, meeting spaces, storage, and project bases.

We have a prospective space in Edinburgh and invite creative practitioners, collectives, performers, local festivals, and arts/wellbeing charities in the local area to contact us to note interest in these spaces. We will be offering viewings on a first come first served basis, so please get in touch!

EP Spaces was set up to support and build creative communities, and animate and transform each location into a creative hub.

– £50 per month admin fee for use of the space
– £10 annual EP Spaces membership
– PPL insurance (this can be purchased via a-n or SAU starting at £38 per year)
– Minimum usage agreement of 1 month


All our spaces are temporary, are entirely self-managed, and vary from site to site in terms of available amenities. Lighting, electricity, running water, kitchen and toilet facilities are available in many of our spaces, and reasonable usage is included in the cost.

Location: Edinburgh City
