We are a community coworking and creative events space based in Edinburgh. To be more precise, we are based in the community of Portobello, Edinburgh’s seaside. We are a collection of social entrepreneurs, freelancers, charities, SMEs and enterprises. From photographers to translators, graphic designers to environmental consultants, we have over 100 members and provide office, studios, permanent desk and hot desking. Tribe is big on building community and believes that a nurturing environment which sparks creativity and collaboration is good for business, individuals and communities. At Tribe, you will also find a strong community of female run enterprises through our partner, Tribe Women, as well as The Edinburgh Tool Library, Velow Bikeworks, Portobello Natural Health, Sodak, The Pilates Studio Edinburgh and more. Tribe Porty is proudly a social enterprise.
It’s very quiet here at Tribe and we can’t wait to see everyone back but in your own time. We’ve carried out a risk assessment and put new procedures in place to keep everyone safe and give all our members the confidence they need to come back to Tribe. If you have any questions or concerns please speak to Dani, Melissa, Debbie or Hannah. For our our latest Covid secure risk assessment please see here. For more information and FAQs see here.
Although this labour of love building would still be cool on its own, the folk who use it really do make it extra special. We all share a creative approach to life and work and sign up to the give and take culture of Tribe. We all have something important to give and we all need each other, eventually. It is a place to connect, be productive and get inspired.
I love the commute along the beach from Leith, even in the rain it’s fantastic. I like the people Tribe attracts and the organised lunch sessions.
Right now I am working on too many things but I am most excited about launching a new service to my existing design consulting business: Design Sprints, a fast, nimble and proven solution to make your business ideas happen. Separate to that, I am very excited about an exhibition I am producing aimed at raising awareness of Type 1 Diabetes, follow the project here.
Due to COVID19, most of our classes are available online. Get in touch with your teacher directly.
