Unearth a host of artistic gems at the North Light Dunbar Festival this August 2012

North Light Dunbar

Escape the Fringe for a day out and discover the delights of Dunbar

Discover the stunning area of Dunbar, where artists will be showcasing and creating works for the whole of the second half of August. Situated less than 30km east of Edinburgh, the former Royal Burgh will pay tribute to a host of different artworks and artistry, providing a tranquil day out from the bustling Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

As part of Year of Creative Scotland 2012, northlight is shining a spotlight on the heritage, creativity and the continuing inspiration of Dunbar, a beautiful and unique location.

Amongst others, Artist in Residence Alistair Cook will be working from McArthur’s store on the Cromwell Harbour throughout the summer working with wet plate collodion, an antique photographic technology dating to the 1850s.

From now until the 31st August, northlight invites you to the unfolding season of creative happenings in the landscape of Dunbar; to be explored, exhibited and experienced through the works of 26 national and international artists within the landscape of the town, harbour and the John Muir Way.

The event is free of charge, and will run from now until the end of August. Details of individual artists and works can be found on the website.

Year of Creative Scotland is helping to spotlight, celebrate and promote Scotland’s cultural and creative strengths on a world stage. Find out all that this special year has to offer at www.visitscotland.com/creative.
