Hi, my name is Simone Landwehr-Traxler, I am a Glasgow based visual artist and over the next few months I will be facilitating a series of consultations for the Edinburgh Shoreline Project.
News and updates
We were at Wardie Bay beach with Wardie Bay Beachwatch, the Marine Conservation Society and local residents to do a beach clean and survey. What did we find? The usual horrors: wet wipes galore, small plastic items such as bottle lids and cotton bud sticks and even a needle!
The day is finally here, the Edinburgh Shoreline exhibition is open! We have been working hard with our exhibition designer The Port Creative to bring you an engaging and thought-provoking display on the Edinburgh shoreline.
The Edinburgh Shoreline project, part of Edinburgh Living Landscape, is a community based initiative to raise awareness of the rich history and biodiversity of the city’s coast and consider the environmental and economic pressures on it.
Schools, community groups and individuals who care about the local environment and heritage are being invited to join together and regenerate natural habitats along Edinburgh’s 27km coastline from Port Edgar to Joppa.
