Film  

Filmmaker Ray Bird has been documenting the project. His investigative filming style/ approach has enabled him to build on the work of the groups to further elaborate on many of the captivating stories of Leithers and their history.

Photography Exhibition

Gathering the stories of Leith today, photographer Craig Maclean, collaborated with local community group and business enabling them to create the ‘Slice of Leith’ exhibition of images which shared their stories of migration and how food has been a way to share their culture with the wider communities of Leith.
