'FOOTPRINT' is a walking and cycling map + guide planned for East Edinburgh (Portobello, Leith) & Musselburgh with artist-led routes that intersect the urban with nature through lesser used habitats, encouraging everyday physical activity as a way to improve well being.
Following on from our recent mapping sessions with the public, we have now commissioned five artists who we are working with to develop some routes inspired by the journeys and places of interest we have collected.
The commissioned artists are: Chris Dooks, Alec Finlay, Deirdre Macleod, Holger Mohaupt, and Suzie Parry. We plan to run a number of events during the summer and at the 2019 Porty Art Walk, information about which will be available soon.
A map + guide will then be produced by December 2019 that presents around 6 routes for cycling and walking, and highlighting relevant sites that local communities have mapped within each of their neighbourhoods.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED?
If you live in Leith, Portobello or Musselburgh and would like to be a part of this project please complete this short form below.
We are keen to hear from people interested in increasing their regular daily activity, to encourage those to get out and about who may not often do so, and to find new routes to be explored locally, as well as to meet with others in a friendly informative way.
We hope to hold some more sessions and events in the coming weeks, to which all participants will be invited to come along to.
