Event Details

The Window Wanderland concept, which transforms everyday streets into outdoor art galleries, is coming to the streets of Leith for the first time this month, giving the community the chance to show off their creative talents.

 

The event is being organised by Port of Leith Housing Association’s (PoLHA) subsidiary company, Quay Community Improvements (Quay), which is enabling community groups in the EH6/EH7 postcodes, and shop owners and residents in and around the Great Junction Street, New Kirkgate and Constitution Street areas to decorate their windows.

 

The event, which has never taken place in Leith or Edinburgh before, has already received financial backing from the Big Lottery Awards for All fund, and support from the City of Edinburgh Council, Dr Bells Family Centre, Multi-Cultural Family Base, The Junction (young people’s service), YMCA, Inspiring Leith, Leith Creative and other local businesses.

 

Quay is using Big Lottery funding to supply arts materials for workshops, as well as providing artists to support participating residents and groups to create window displays for the event.
