Leith Creative – Making Places

Adapted from an email form Citizen Curator, with apologies for late posting by LHNCC. (The email was received in good time.)

I wanted to initially flag that Leith Creative and the Scottish Community Development Center will be co-hosting three meetings over the coming months.

Building on from the Leith Conference in October 2019, the meetings will focus on the key issues effecting the area, the development of a Local Place Plan and the potential of a new Leith Community Development Trust.

I will circulate booking details early February, but for your diary – meetings will be held in the Leith Community Center between 6.30 and 9pm, on the;

  • 20th February
  • 19th March
  • 23rd April

The meetings are open to all so please do share as soon as bookings open. A light bite and refreshment will be available on the night.

As some of you know over the break I took the decisions to step down from Citizen Curator, the charity that supported this Leith Conference and founded Leith Creative. It will be winding down over the coming months. I hope to finish this project and focus on the foundation of something new for the area to continue this work.

In the mean time, just a quick thank you for your support so far, and I will be responding in person shortly.

Best wishes
