Happy Friday !
We have had a very productive week at Here + Now as we have been out and about speaking to people in various places around Edinburgh. We are developing a very exciting project called PEP Talks (People Engaging in Place). The concept of the PEP Talks project is to ignite an interest in a certain location around the city and invite speakers and contributors to an evening (or day) of discussion and inspiration. We are in the process of developing the project for wider release, and have been collecting material as a first stage - a PREP Talk for the .. PEP Talks… get it?!
We have been out in the cold chatting to passing people and are now in the process of developing a short film featuring the people we talked to. It’s been inspiring and interesting to really engage with the public and the environment around us. By engaging in a simple conversation we have gained a huge amount of insight into some spaces around Edinburgh. It definitely demonstrates that we can learn the most about a place from the people that use it. Watch this space for our PREP Talk film .. More to come soon…!!
