Curated Conversations – Biomorphis and Leith Creative
Friday 7th July 2017
11am - 4pm, free entry
As part of the People and Places programme, Biomorphis will co-curate an exhibition of ‘Leith Listings’, a new directory for the Leith neighbourhood identifying local buildings, structures, people and places of special architectural or historical interest.
During the event, GoogleEarth street view, snap shots and printed images will be accessioned, adding to the list and building up the collection. At the same time, out on the streets of Leith, facilitators from HERE+NOW will be engaging passers-by, identifying the parts of Leith’s streetscape which people love and want to see incorporated into the live evolving list. Part of Architecture Fringe 2017.
This event is also part of the People and Places: Make Leith Better project. Leith Creative is looking for as many people who live and/or work in the Leith area as possible to contribute their views to the project via this survey: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/LeithCreative
Leith Creative is a place-based research project that asks ‘How can we Make Leith Better?’ Through a series of structured events and creative interventions, Leith Creative will be engaging members of the Leith community this summer, asking people to define local assets, challenges, and identify the steps individuals can make in improving their place. The information collected will then be transformed into a cultural blueprint for the area, that takes on board the viewpoints of local people on how their space is developed.
Leith Creative is co-delivered by Morvern Cunningham of LeithLate and Duncan Bremner of Citizen Curator. The People and Places: Make Leith Better project is supported by the Scottish Government, Creative Scotland and the City of Edinburgh Council.
