About Shoreline project

The Edinburgh Shoreline is a year long project exploring the city’s 27km coastline – the historical relationship between people and the sea; the plants and animals found there and the challenges that the coastline faces. With the active involvement of the shoreline communities, one of the highlights will be a major exhibition at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh from 23rd July-23rd September, 2018. We are seeking contributions to the exhibition from communities along the Shoreline and in delivering longer term legacy on the Shoreline. This is a chance to explore and share how your community relates to its section of shoreline.

This initiative is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Green Infrastructure Community Engagement Fund, administered by Scottish Natural Heritage on behalf of the Scottish Government.

As a start to this exciting project we would like to invite local community representatives to an event on 29th March, 6.00 pm – 8.00 pm run by Creative Carbon Scotland https://www.creativecarbonscotland.com/project/green-tease/. This event will be a chance to learn more about the project, explore how communities can contribute towards the exhibition working with artists, and a chance to meet other people from along the Shoreline.

We are seeking around six representatives from each Edinburgh coastal community. Please forward this email to appropriate contacts within your area. The event is free but must be booked through the Shoreline Project Manager – Charlotte Johnson- see contact details below. Travel expenses will be paid on production of appropriate travel tickets or receipts. We look forward to welcoming you all to the Botanic Garden on the 29th.
