Over the last six months, place-based research project Leith Creative has been engaging with Leithers, asking the simple question, ‘What would you do to make Leith better?’ Now we invite you to attend our two-day community conference at the Leith Community Education Centre on 19th & 20th August, to discuss some of the top issues and themes that have come out of our research to date.
Day Two of the conference will focus on how we can better identify, protect and enhance the local character and identity of Leith, particularly through heritage and planning. Special guest speakers include Ben Macpherson (MSP Edinburgh North and Leith) and Barbara Cummins (Historic Environment Scotland).
Audience members will then be invited to join informal round table discussions on the headline themes and issues highlighted by the Leith Creative research to date.
People & Places: Make Leith Better is supported by the Scottish Government, Creative Scotland and the City of Edinburgh Council.
