Leith Creative Logo 2017


In 2015, Leith Creative conducted a cultural mapping exercise in order to better understand Leith’s cultural resources and creative industries. We found that Leith is a unique area of cultural and creative activity.

In 2017, Leith Creative worked to bring a wider community together to talk about the future of the area. We spoke with over 2500 residents to find out what’s good, what’s bad and what they would do to make Leith better.

Building on this research and network of creative and community activity, in 2019 we are working again in partnership with local organisations to develop Making Places – a Local Place Plan for Leith.


Leith Creative is an independent place-based network. Projects have been supported by
