The Big Idea
Behind any great project there is always a great idea. In our case, we have many.
The Nest offers something irresistible. Come inside and discover!
We know that we’re not all equal – we know that we’re all unique…
The city of Edinburgh hosts hundreds of cultural events and festivals each year, and this industry has brought together a huge network of freelancers, artists and creators, who form part of this creative community: photographers, designers, graphic artists, filmmakers, theatre companies, musicians, painters, editors, journalists, sculptors, and more.

The big idea
Edinburgh Creative Nest is a shared workspace, which understands the creative activity of artists and cultural agents of all disciplines from two perspectives: artistic and economic value.
What makes us so different?
Members of our workspace will find a balance between two fields (art and business), which will provide them with training and tools to best prepare themselves for opportunities in the industry and for a competitive market. In addition, we offer reasonable rates to our professionals.
With all this, ENC will be a distribution platform which will publicise artists and project in our co-working space to the city of Edinburgh.
What else can the Nest offer you?
Available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so that you can create your perfect schedule.
If you’re flying solo, or part of a team, we have the space to best fit you.
We know how difficult it is to balance work and family… So we can help you out with a childminding service.
Meeting up is important: with your colleagues, with a client who wants to get to know your work, with a supplier… and why not, whilst you show off your latest mind-map?
A dazzling space: lights, camera, action! All the facilities in a professional working space, with the best accessories and equipment.
You provide the inspiration, and we provide the tools. If your business is based in manufacturing and crafts, we provide you with an area built specially for it.
We love to go to museums, but not as much as having the art hanging up on our own walls. This is why we offer a showroom to publicise your work.
It’s not all about work, so we provide a space to relax, meditate and find the peace you need for your next good idea.
If you’re going to work long hours in the Nest, it’s best to have a place to snack.
What works best
We have various plans in our Nest available to meet the requirements and expectations of each and every of you: enterprising birds.
These plans fit the needs of today’s hugely varied working habits, and the particular requirements of projects and routines which make up the day-to-day creative ecosystem.
