An environmental public art programme could be developed in Dunbar at a cost of £42,700, community councillors have heard.

Tracy Morgan, programme manager for North Light Arts, outlined the plan. She said the aim was to hold a conference in October exploring how public environmental artwork could be created. It was hoped to get £29,500 from Creative Scotland for the research project which would be supported with a small amount of funding from North Light Arts. Bids would be made to trusts and for East Lothian Council’s partnership funding.

She said: “It will hopefully nuture a chance to bring local organisations and people together with artists, scientists and environmentalists to explore how we can create public environmental artwork for Dunbar with the community feeding into these ideas. More community gardens could be developed and the harbour area showcased with public art.”
