We welcome teacher-led visits to Collective

Collective is a new kind of Observatory, bringing people together around contemporary art and iconic heritage. It is a unique place to bring pupils on a school trip.

You’ll find a number of downloadable resources here to help you plan your visit. As space on our site is limited, please help us to make sure your visit goes smoothly by letting us know which school you are from, how many pupils you plan to bring and when you wish to visit by emailing [email protected]

Local Partnerships

Collective is working closely with two local primary schools, Abbeyhill and Leith Walk and the wider Drummond Community High School Cluster, to develop strong long–term relationships to bring staff and pupils together with artists.

Collective’s work with Abbeyhill Primary School is in partnership with the Artists in-Residence Programme at Abbeyhill Primary School. Work by artists and children is presented at the annual Colony of Artists in Abbeyhill. These partnerships are supported by Children & the Arts.
