Artachat and Big Things on the Beach present an informal yet informative exploration into the current state of Public Art.

What is the relevance of the monumental sculpture today?

How will the current changes in funding affect public art and artists?

And audience participation... how much does and should the public decide?

Please join us, along with guest speaker Kenny Hunter, for this special Edinburgh Art Festival discussion and debate.

* This is a free event but due to limited seating, please reply to this email at enquiries@bigthingsonthebeach.org.uk to confirm a place.

Big Things on the Beach is a public art trust in Portobello, a seaside suburb of Edinburgh, Scotland. It was formed by a group of residents in 2003 to explore the potential of the seafront as a site for engagement with public artworks by both emerging and established artists. Since 2004 we have commissioned artists to create substantial temporary artworks, trained ourselves and others in the process of commissioning public artworks and successfully raised funding to these ends.
