Edinburgh Art Festival Explorers


Kate and Alchemy Arts would like to thank all the staff and pupils of for all the ideas and inspiration you have given for theĀ Edinburgh Art Festival Explorers Trail.Ā The wonderful ideas and artwork contributed by staff and pupils are nowĀ with the Edinburgh art Festival artists and designers and being madeĀ into the Edinburgh Art Festival Explorers guide and map.

From the 1st August the map and guide will be available to collectĀ from the City Art Centre, Fruitmarket Gallery and Dovecot Studios.Ā Families will be able to follow the guide, completing creativeĀ activities and collecting stamps along the way.Ā  Once all the stampsĀ have been collected, families will be able to redeem a special limitedĀ edition prize from Trinity Apse, where they will also have the chanceĀ to play an extraordinary musical art piece!

We will be launching the Map and Guide at International Play Day onĀ Wed 31st July.Ā  This will be the very first time the map and guide isĀ available to the public.Ā  We would like to invite all Tollcross staff and pupilsĀ along to collect their map and guide and to celebrate all the hardĀ work that has gone into it.Ā  We will also be running large scale
interactive art workshops which families can join in with.

International Play Day will take place on the Royal Mile betweenĀ 12.30-4pm Wed 31 July.Ā  The whole Royal Mile from the city Chambers toĀ North Bridge will be taken over by exciting play activities includingĀ a giant sandpit, huge water play area, magic potion making and theĀ Edinburgh Art Festival Explorers art zone.

Edinburgh Art Festival Explorers can be found in the quadrangle of theĀ City Chambers and will be creating some weird and wonderful art works.
We hope to see you there!
