Christine’s lines projected in Leith
Edinburgh celebrated World Book Day by bringing beautiful words from 11 Cities of Literature around the world to the streets of Leith.
From 3-13 March, poems will be projected from Creative Exchange onto the Royal Bank of Scotland on Leith’s Constitution Street, with one poem from each of the first 11 Cities of Literature featuring each night.
The projections are accompanied by a small exhibition within Creative Exchange, highlighting each of the UNESCO Cities of Literature featured and showcasing the poets whose work will be projected.
The participating cities are Edinburgh (Scotland), Krakow (Poland), Melbourne (Australia), Iowa City (USA), Dublin (Ireland), Reykjavík (Iceland), Norwich (England), Dunedin (New Zealand), Prague (Czech Republic), Heidelberg (Germany) and Granada (Spain).
This project is delivered by Edinburgh City of Literature Trust in partnership with Edinburgh’s sister City of Literature, Krakow.
