Crossings is an exhibition exploring the heritage of Leith. The exhibition is the cumulation of a project developed by Dancebase in partnership with Edinburgh Museums & Galleries and Historic Environment Scotland.
Several groups of young people explored the heritage of Leith through visits to the Museum Collections Centre, the City Art Centre and Trinity House (Historic Environment Scotland). The groups then chose museum collections to display and worked with dance and sound artists to create new dance films which explored the history of Leith and its people.
The exhibition showcases museum objects selected by the young people and the films created as a part of the project. You can also watch the films on the Dancebase website
The People’s Story Museum is open Wednesday- Saturday 10-5 and Sunday 12-5.
Crossings was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
