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. Together with Stephen Brown, a community engagement practitioner, I will be asking questions about how individuals and communities interact and value their Shoreline, exploring both what they like and don’t like.
I will use the information gathered during these consultations to inform an interpretive map of the Edinburgh coast, emphasising the emotional, physical and practical connections and concerns people have to that Shoreline.
I also hope to capture and amplify the aspirations communities have for their coast.
The first consultation will be held in Leith Library on the 17th of July, 4pm – 7pm. Hope to see you there!
