HERE+NOW have been busy building at the Edinburgh Tool Library! As part of Leith Creative's 'People and Places – Make Leith Better' project, a collaboration between Leith Late, Citizen Curator, Lateral North and Biomorphis, we built a giant size Place Standard Tool which will be mobile and interactive to gather people’s perceptions of Leith.
The wheel will tour around Leith, literally rolling along the streets to pop-up locations along the way. The tour will begin on June 15th as part of the Leith Late 2017 festival opening night at the Newkirkgate at the foot of Leith Walk. You can then find it touring along Leith Walk and around Out of The Blue as part of the ‘Leith Listings’ exhibition in collaboration with Biomorphis, this event and the rest of the tour will be part of Architecture Fringe 2017. An interactive exhibition at St Margaret’s House between the 12th and 23rd of June will be open for more opportunities to contribute to the mobile Place Standard Tool.
HERE+NOW hope you can join us for our curated conversation at the exhibition on the 12th July at the public Gallery 1, where we invite an open and lively discussion about what we love and what we can improve in Leith.
