Launch of the Edinburgh Alphabet: an A-Z of the city’s museum collections

Makar and Ken Cockburn

With Edinburgh poet Ken Cockburn at launch of the Edinburgh Alphabet Exhibition at the City Art Centre

18th May saw the opening of the summer exhibition at the City Art Centre – three floors of exhibits drawn from all the city’s many museums. It is a fascinating and eclectic mix, bound to stir the memory and imagination. The exhibits are organised on an A-Z basis. It’s a lovely airy space to wander around.
Several Edinburgh poets have offered poems linked to the exhibition (and/ or the Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology). Come and hear them read their poems, 11am- 11.30am, on Saturday September 16th, Friday September 22nd and Wednesday September 27th.
