We Are All Citizens

We Are All Citizens

We are celebrating the fourth year of our flagship Communities project Citizen, which has brought communities in North Edinburgh, Musselburgh and Tollcross together through creativity. This August we share some of their inspirational work and invite you to add your stories or share a meal.  

Citizen is supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery and through the PLACE Programme (funded by the Scottish Government, City of Edinburgh Council, and the Edinburgh Festivals, and supported and administered by Creative Scotland).
