In summer 2020 we designed a virtual tour of murals and artist studios in collaboration with the arts organisation LeithLate. The LeithLate Virtual Tours engage old and new audiences with Edinburgh’s street art, artists and community-based institutions that lie outside the city centre. Through the map users can explore hi-res images and audio tour guides of Leith neighbourhood murals and bespoke videos by artists of their studio spaces in the Leith area.
Currently Google has a monopoly on digital galleries worldwide – the open source LeithLate virtual tours offers a case study as an alternative to Google’s stranglehold in this area.
