Edinburgh Shoreline exhibition


Event Details

With the active involvement of local communities from Queensferry to Joppa, the highlight of the project will be an exhibition at the John Hope Gateway, Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh from 23rd June – 23rd September 2018. We’re pairing six communities up with creatives, to tell us an important story from their part of the shoreline.

We’re really excited to bring an element of co-production to the exhibition; giving communities a chance to make their own mark on the project: think anything from turning plastics from local beach cleans into displays that challenge us to think about or impact on their environment, to celebrating fishing heritage through the recreation of the songs of the local fishwives who sold their catch door-to-door over a century ago!
