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; it’s important history, how the area has developed over time, and the unique landscape which supports a wealth of different species and makes the area internationally important for wildlife. We’ve also explored the challenges our shoreline faces and looked at the creative ways that other cities around the world have embraced their proximity to the sea.
We’re currently working with 6 community groups from along the shoreline to create their own displays, which will be added to the exhibition from 28 July. We have a really interesting mix of creative projects coming up for visitors to see, such as a knitted display of species such as seaweeds found along our coast and recreations of the songs of the Newhaven fishwives!
The exhibition is on show at the John Hope Gateway, Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh until 23 September. Entry is free.
