A heritage walking tour hosted by the University of Edinburgh's Curious Edinburgh digital app is the inspiration for the exhibition 'Art in Granton'. More than 60 contributions by 30+ artists and makers celebrates the rich industrial history, the urban vistas, the landscapes, the shoreline and the people living and working in Granton. The variety of artworks on show include figurative and abstract work, photography, ceramics and an audiovisual installation. Viewers are invited to experience the walking tour through these artworks and enjoy and learn about Granton's heritage. All artworks are for sale. Contributions from the local community and a digital print of a drawing of the demolished ‘Granton Castle’, donated by the National Galleries of Scotland, complete the show.

The exhibition opens on Friday 25 October at 5pm and continues on Saturday (10-6pm) and Sunday (11-5pm). During the weekend the new granton:hub cafe will be open for morning coffee and lunch.
