Your City Your Dreams

What are your dreams for your community? The Culture & Communities Mapping Project, in partnership with WHALE Arts, North Edinburgh Arts, granton:hub, Festivals Edinburgh, and the Festival Fringe Society, is holding workshops in May asking you about the places you value across the city and your neighbourhood, along with ideas for future arts and culture events in your area.

You’ll be asked to take photographs of places that give you normally visit or feel comfortable with – places you go to dream, to meet with family and friends, to get inspired, to go for a walk or de-stress. You’ll also work with large paper maps to point out spaces you care about in your neighbourhood and across the city. You’ll use the maps to think about arts and culture events and opportunities that you would like to see in your neighbourhood.

These workshops are open to everyone. They will take place in May, either in-person, as guidelines allow, or through an online workshop. Participants can also take part on their own time at home, with a packet of materials we will deliver to you.
