Have you got an idea that can benefit the community in Leith? Could £500 help you get that idea off the ground and maybe get the community involved?
Leith Creative has teamed up with Firstport to encourage people to make the positive changes they want to see in their Leith community. We are inviting applications from people who live or work in Leith to apply to get a chance to pitch live at an informal event at The Bakers Arms Edinburgh on 29th June for £500 to make your idea a reality. We have 3 awards of £500 in total.
Apply here: firstport.formstack.com/forms/pitchfor500_leith
NB You need to fill out an application form in order to be shortlisted to pitch at the event. Deadline for applications: Sunday 25th June.
To enter you must live or work in EH6 or EH7 postcode area and the activity must benefit the community in Leith. We want new ideas from individuals — not a project for an existing group — ideas from people who want to make a difference, even better if this is your first time doing something like this.
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 People and Places: Make Leith Better project. Have your say here: 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.
