As part of the People and Places programme, HERE+NOW will be taking a giant mobile ‘Place Standard’ tool on a tour of Leith.

Rolling through the streets, pausing at strategic locations along the way, the spinning wheel offers a live invitation to contribute, using chalk from passers-by to slowly build up a picture of what people think about Leith.

The wheel will be at St Margaret’s House on the 12th July, where you are invited to join HERE+NOW in person for a celebration of Place. We'll be discussing identity and belonging in Leith for a lunchtime discussion from 12.30pm on Wednesday 12th July with some special guests. Free to attend, sandwiches included.

The Wheel-on-Tour can also be seen on 19 July 12-2pm at The Ripple Project, 198 Restalrig South. Part of Architecture Fringe 2017.

This event is also part of the People and Places: Make Leith Better project. 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 project via this survey: 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.
