Castle brae High School development of outdoor space

Project Details


The aim of this project is for postgraduate students from Edinburgh University to co-create a series of art-based improvements, incorporating a community garden, with pupils from Castlebrae High School in Craigmillar, one of the most deprived areas in Scotland, which will significantly improve the quality of the outdoor space within Castlebrae High’s grounds. Creation of the art-based improvements will contribute to raising the confidence, attainment and aspiration of school pupils within an area of high deprivation and low educational achievement in Edinburgh. It will also provide the Edinburgh students with an opportunity to put the skills they are learning in the MSc in Material Practice at Edinburgh College of Art into practice in a community setting and, through the process of teaching school pupils, provide them with an opportunity for their own personal development.
