🎨Forthline Project Art Exhibition – Scottish Seabird Centre
More than 100 artists, crafters, and creatives have come together to produce this breath-taking illustrated story of the Firth of Forth coastline, bringing history, communities, wildlife, and fears for the future together into an exquisite series of multimedia squares.
Conceived during the dark days of winter lockdown, this project combines the passionate reflections of over a hundred different people about a part of the Forth coast that is special to them. A long storyline of enmeshed crafted memories and visions of the Forth has emerged, linking the Fife, Edinburgh and East Lothian coasts, biodiversity, people and communities.
Many people have focused on the coast’s local history and wildlife, its beauty and diversity, and the many species and memories that have been lost. While frustration and anger about marine degredation and pollution can be seen in many pieces, there is also heartfelt hope for the future.
We invite you to come and enjoy the artwork, learn more about the project, and explore some of the important themes raised by the artists.
