HERE+NOW in partnership with Leith Creative, in the ‘People & Places: Make Leith Better’ project, invite you to join them for a series of pop up events and curated conversations in conjunction with Leith Late 17 and Architecture Fringe 17. Join HERE+NOW as they take a giant mobile ‘Place Standard’ tool on tour around the streets of Leith.

Literally rolling through the streets and pausing at strategic locations along the way, the spinning wheel offers a live invitation of input using chalk from passers-by to slowly build up a visual picture of what people think about Leith.  The wheel will be supporting Biomorphis’ ‘Leith Listings’ exhibition at Out of The Blue, followed by two additional tours of Leith and can be found at St Margaret’s House at an interactive exhibition between 12th and the 23rd of July where you are invited to join HERE+NOW for a curated conversation and celebration of place on the 12th of July.
