Kirsten Pont is an architect from Leith who specialises in conservation.
The city is a language, a repository of possibilities, and walking is the act of speaking that language, of selecting from those possibilities.” (Rebecca Solnit)
Tracing a global state of crisis through the streets of one Scottish town, this self-guided trail explores the past, present and myriad possible futures at a micro-scale. Delve deep into the ancient and diverse port of Leith: its architecture, history and intangible cultural heritage, all while exploring the radical power of Place in connecting with our common humanity, tackling and transforming our world in crisis.
Trail maps will be available free from Custom Lane throughout the festival dates - collect yours to take part!
