Message from the Skies returns to Edinburgh’s Hogmanay on 1 January with Shorelines, a collection of letters to Scotland reflecting on our relationship with our seas, waters and coasts and our maritime heritage.

The words of five celebrated writers: Charlotte Runcie, Irvine Welsh, Kathleen Jamie, Kayus Bankole and Robin Robertson – will illuminate and animate landmarks around the city with a maritime theme this January.

Message from the Skies: Shorelines runs from 1-25 January 2020 and is developed in partnership with Edinburgh City of Literature and the Edinburgh International Book Festival and funded by Creative Scotland through the Scottish Government’s Festivals EXPO fund.

Projection locations will be announced in December 2019.
