Introducing the “Coastal Knowledge” interactive map


We are delighted to share Coastal Knowledge, an interactive map exhibition of Scotland’s Coasts.

Delivered in collaboration with Granton Hub and Curious Edinburgh, this initiative provides windows into Scottish coastal communities, providing various actors (researchers, artists, community organisations and inhabitants of coastal communities) the possibility to showcase their visual and narrative perspectives on the Scottish coast.  We want to share the beauty of the Scottish coast, but also its vital role in the day-to-day lives of people in Scotland- for example, its many industrial roles.

The map is already populated with information and anecdotes from YAS members and friends, but we are eager for further coastal narratives!  This is a dynamic and ongoing exhibit, and if you have any artwork, photographs,  stories, videos that reflect your experience with Scotland’s coasts, please send them to us via the exhibition entry form.
