Exploring in and around Summerhall

Walk around Summerhall 11.00 am, Discussion at Creative Scotland 2 pm

Join us for a walk around Summerhall to explore its surroundings as well as its many corridors, cupboards and lecture halls; some of them still undiscovered. Deveron Arts will lead a two hour performative walk with artists Tim Knowles and Ania Bas, who have been undertaking both urban and rural walking in the UK and elsewhere.

The walking action will be followed by a panel discussion chaired by curator and writer Dave Beech. Both rural and urban walking artists will take part, including artists Gill Russell and poet Alec Finlay, with whom Deveron Arts has been working this year on the Hielan' Way project.

Walk: Summerhall, 1, Summerhall EH9 1QH

Panel discussion: Creative Scotland, Waverly Gate, 2-4 Waterloo Place, EH1 3EG

A Deveron Arts project organised in collaboration with Edinburgh Arts Festival. Supported by Creative Scotland, Aberdeenshire Council and Heritage Lottery Fund.

Co-curator: Nick Wong

Magnetic North's 'A Walk at the Edge of the World' is part of the summerhall programme and could be a nice way to round off your walking day, we enjoyed it when it was in Huntly.
