Edinburgh Police Box Festival

The Edinburgh Police Box Festival last weekend was the first festival of its kind. Eleven old police boxes around the city opened their doors as miniature venues for food, charity and art shows, receiving positive coverage from The Spurtle, The Edinburgh Evening News, STV and others.

I was delighted to be asked to design the festival map, and to be given a space in the Leith Walk police box to exhibit some of my work over the weekend. Thanks to Simon Baker for taking photographs.

Below: an interactive map of Scotland asking ‘What kind of place would you like to live in?’ added to by the public over the weekend. Responses included: ‘A green and sunny place’, ‘Food to be a human right’, ‘Equal’, ‘Independent’, and my favourite, ‘I want to live in a sofa bed’.
