Edinburgh’s Shoreline is a year-long project exploring the city’s 27km coastline – the historical relationship between people and the sea; the plants and animals found there and the challenges that the coastline faces.
With the active involvement of the shoreline communities one of the highlights will be a major exhibition at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh from 23rd July – 23rd September 2018.
We are seeking contributions to the exhibition from communities along the Shoreline and in delivering longer term legacy on the Shoreline. This is a chance to explore and share how your community relates to its section of shoreline.
As a start to this exciting project Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh and Creative Carbon Scotland would like to invite local community representatives to an event on 29th March, 6.00 pm – 8.00 pm run through our Green Tease programme. This event will be a chance to learn more about the project, explore how community ideas for the exhibition can be creatively presented with input from artists and a chance to meet other people from along the Shoreline.
We are seeking around six representatives from each Edinburgh coastal community. Please forward this email to appropriate contacts within your area. The event is free but must be booked through Eventbrite.
