Upcoming Leith Creative reporting event: Leith Blueprint

(adapted from an email from Leith Creative)

Over the last six months, place-based research project Leith Creative has been engaging with Leithers, asking the simple question What would you do to make Leith better? Co-delivered by Morvern Cunningham (LeithLate) and Duncan Bremner (Citizen Curator), alongside creative partners BiomorphisHERE+NOW and Lateral North, Leith Creative has appeared at and facilitated 18 public engagement events in a six month timeframe, reaching over 2000 people who live and/or work in the Leith area.

Now Leith Creative like you to join them, as they feed back on the information they have gathered. The reporting event will take place in Custom Lane, a collaborative centre for design and making in the heart of the Leith community on Thursday 19th October between 6-8pm. Please reserve a place via Eventbrite.
There will also be an opportunity after the event to visit DOK Artist Space, a grassroots arts initiative currently situated in what is locally known as ‘the steel shed’ to the right of Ocean Terminal. The building, a former paint shed constructed with rivets and built by apprentices, now represents the last vestige of Henry Robb’s shipyard company which once dominated the area.

Leith Creative’s People & Places: Make Leith Better project is supported by the Scottish Government, Creative Scotland and the City of Edinburgh Council. Leith Creative thanks the City of Edinburgh Council for supporting this free-to-attend event.
