Edinburgh Could Say Farewell to Established Arts Venues

An article in the Evening News today exposes the plans to sell off two of Edinburghs well established underground arts venues. 

In a move that will leave a large gap in the Edinburgh scene, The Edinburgh University Settlement stands to make around £2 million from the properties which include GRV and The Forest Cafe.

Framed Sponsor Africa in Motion Exhibition

Framed are delighted to announce will be sponsoring the exhibition for the Africa in Motion film festival at the Edinburgh Film House on Lothian Road.

Edinburgh is a cultural centre of Europe with an international arts scene. Africa in Motion doesn't just add to this, it adds a unique element by showcasing a culture which is rich and colourful but often not well represented. The ethos of Africa in Motion very much reflects our own and we not only look forward to working together but also to seeing what gems they have in store for us this year.
