North Light Arts | Walking a Line
Thursday 28 February 2013 at 23:00
A journey is an act of travel, discovery and connection: over this coming summer, Walking a Line will deliver environmentally sustainable artist-led projects which creatively invigorate both the man-made and the natural coastal landscape of Dunbar and East Lothian, celebrating Dunbar’s greatest son, John Muir.
Walking a Line is a Year of Natural Scotland project and will evolve over the season by way of site-specific research-led works on the nature of this landscape: through walking, looking, making, marking and recording. Selected proposals will contribute to a process of ‘knowing’ and exploring the unique nature of our environment, through the nurturing of ideas, performance, exhibition, participation and documentation.
North Light Arts is an artist-led organisation delivering innovative public arts projects and educational initiatives. We seek to generate new ways of engaging with our immediate environment. We develop opportunities that actively connect specialists, organisations, artists and communities across generations; seeding and fusing ideas, skills and resources to encourage a stimulating cultural dialogue.
North Light Arts will be linking with the John Muir’s Birthplace as they celebrate the centenary of the publication of John Muir, My Boyhood and Youth. A number of artist-led guided walks will offer the possibility of connecting with local specialists: the Countryside Rangers, geologists, marine and natural biologists. A number of weeklong residencies will be offered from our Beach Hut, while a number of other sites are being developed for the staging of work as the season evolves. Our artist in residence Alastair Cook has been invited to work from McArthur’s Store on the old harbour throughout the summer.
Selected artists will be invited to a research day in Dunbar in celebration of the weekend of John Muir’s Birthday on the 21st of April.
This public arts project will be developed by North Light Arts in partnership with Filmpoem, East Lothian Council Arts and Museum Services, John Muir’s Birthplace, Dunbar Harbour Trust, Sustaining Dunbar, Incredibly Edible Dunbar and Dunbar Community Woodland.
This opportunity is available in: East Lothian
