Walking in the Footsteps of Time
Sat, 1 Jul 2023
A collaboration between Art Walk Projects, Bridgend Farmhouse, Creative Action Network, Edinburgh & Lothians Greenspace Trust, and Mutual Studio – part of Craigmillar and Niddrie Festival, 2023.
Craigmillar and Niddrie have a rich history to share. Sometimes that history has been a history of hardship and survival, but it’s also been a history of creativity and hope. This is nowhere better expressed than in the work of Craigmillar Festival Society (1962-2002).
Taking our inspiration from Craigmillar Festival Society, but attentive to the environmental challenges of today, this is an invitation to walk in the footsteps of time; to celebrate the people of Craigmillar and Niddrie and to ask ourselves the following three questions: Where do we come from? Who are we? Where are we going?
While designed as a day’s walk – starting and finishing at Bridgend Farmhouse – each walk and each event can be attended as a one-off activity. Participants are free to come and go throughout the day or to walk in the footsteps of time all day. (If walking all day, please bring sufficient food and water to sustain yourself.) The Parade is the main family event. We encourage everyone in Greater Craigmillar to join us for the Parade. More details about each walk and related events can be found below.
