For one weekend only, Civic Soup and a team of collaborators will co-design and construct a string of temporary gathering spaces along old Restalrig railway in Leith, using recycled and found materials.

We will prototype parallel uses for pockets of space along a historic and repurposed thoroughfare, encouraging passersby to pause by creating Longcuts.

Hop on your bike or take a prolonged amble down Restalrig cycle path for some fun, music, conversation and making. Check out our website for more information and a roster of the workshop as it develops!
