At DOK we work with visual artists from various backgrounds and nationalities on an ongoing basis. In our first year we have worked with various artists, theatre groups, Edinburgh Art Festival, Edinburgh College of Art and Edinburgh College.
One of the key driving factors behind the project is the lack of affordable and unique artist studio space in Edinburgh. We have renovated what was the last remaining building from Henry Robbs Shipyard and saved it from ruin by converting it into affordable studio space and events space that benefits Scottish based artists and the wider Leith Community.
We offer an affordable space for artists to work and communicate with like minded individuals in a relaxed environment. While we are extremely ambitious about what we are setting out to achieve with DOK, we are also at the forefront of establishing our presence at the centre of the greater artistic community in the bustling and cosmopolitan port of Leith.
