10b Broughton Street Lane | Edinburgh EH1 3LY
Founded in 2004, Edinburgh's original artist-run gallery has had a fair few locations in their years. After the closure of Roxy Art House, we find them in their newest home, knee-deep in the New Town on Broughton St Lane.
EMBASSY host an ever-variable programme of exhibitions ranging from solo shows of international artists through to off site projects, and also the yearly Annuale festival, which is a city-wide celebration of emergent art, dynamic events and mad ideas.
What's most beautiful about EMBASSY is its status as a labour of love - the rolling committee of between five and seven members work on a completely voluntary basis. It also presents developmental opportunities for Edinburgh College of Art students in return for funding towards the running of the gallery and core costs.
Keep an eye out for a regularly updated programme of exhibitions, talks, events and opportunities; details of which can be found via their website. [Kate Pasola]
