Art outside the (police) box – because art doesn’t have to be in a gallery

(adapted from an email from Leith Walk police box)

What? A grass roots public art programme. Panels with artwork from local artists, schools & photographers create a changing display of art work on the street.  Your original artwork could be here on the side of this former policebox.

Where? On the outside of Leith walk policebox.

When? August 2018 to August 2019

Why? Public art is free and accessible to all. Art in public places makes people feel connected to each other and proud of their neighbourhood. A piece of art can lift your mood and make your day.

Who? Do you want to get involved? Be part of the Edinburgh tool library team installing the works. Or have your original artwork displayed. We will be holding an open competition in 2019 and welcome original art from anybody. You do not have to be an artist.   Find out more at
