Union Canal Mural Project

Date: 10 - 16 June 2018

As part of our programme inspired by our new building’s fascinating history we are working with Blameless Art Collective and young people from the local area to create a new mural for the canalside at Lochrin Basin. Richie Cumming and Fraser Gray, from Blameless, are leading a series of design workshops and painting sessions on the canalside with Boroughmuir High School, Tynecastle High School, Tollcross Community Centre After School Club and Young Saheliya Health and Wellbeing Project. Head along to the Union Canal and have a look at the finished product!

This project received support from our funders below as well as a grant from City of Edinburgh Council Local Events Fund and venue space provided by Reunion Canal Boats.

Come along to Edinburgh Canal Festival on Saturday 16th June to see the finished mural! We'll also have a special stall where you can try some hands-on printmaking. For more details about our participation Edinburgh Canal Festival please click here.
