What place do you treasure in your city? A hidden nook or favourite spot, a great place to sit and watch the world go by or somewhere you've fond memories or nostalgia for? Often the places that mean the most to us may seem everyday or get walked past without a second thought by others, but they hold particular meaning to us.
HERE+NOW are excited to today announce we are currently working with Givrum, Copenhagen, to openly invite Hold Me Dear submissions for a special exhibition as part of City Link Festival in Edinburgh in September 2015. Individuals in each of the four recent or upcoming City Link Festival cities - Edinburgh, Copenhagen, Istanbul and Hamburg - are invited to submit a photograph and 50 words about a place in their city they treasure.
These photographs and captions will form a continually growing participatory online gallery in the next couple of months leading up to the Festival, and will then culminate in a physical exhibition in an unusual nook of Edinburgh's urban space as part of City Link Festival from 24-27 September 2015.
