Meet Richard, he’s a Wildlife Ranger and he’ll be helping us understand the environment around and ecology of Tranent.
Hear from Drew as he tells us about his role as an Urban Designer on this project.
Hear from Joanna as she talks about her role working with the StreetsAhead Tranent team and how she will help us realise a magnificent mural.
Throughout the Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design 2016 StreetsAhead Tranent will explore children’s views and experiences of their local community and built environment; examining how these factors impact on children’s rights and wellbeing.
Children from Elphinstone, Windygoul, St. Martin’s RC, Ormiston and Sanderson’s Wynd primaries will participate in workshops with a strong intergenerational and heritage theme. A small group will then work with artists, drama facilitators and local professionals to create a large scale mural reflecting the views of all those involved.
In partnership with Festival of Architecture, East Lothian Health and Social Care Partnership, East Lothian Council, Heritage Lottery Fund, Historic Scotland and Tranent Conservation and Regeneration Scheme.
