1 July - 11 September 2022
Charities from both sides of the Firth of Forth have joined forces to create an exciting new exhibition celebrating the spectacular natural history and heritage of the Forth estuary. The Scottish Fisheries Museum and the Scottish Seabird Centre invite the public to dive into the stories of the Forth, from past, present and future perspectives. The Firth of Forth, along with its coasts and islands, has a rich multi-layered history and a wealth of stories to tell. From wildlife to industry and landscapes to human relationships, many of those stories continue to be relevant to our present and will influence our future.
Open at the Scottish Fisheries Museum:
1st July - 11th September 2022
Open at the Scottish Seabird Centre:
17 September - mid-November.
Events and activities running alongside the exhibition will invite local young people aged 16-24 years to co-create dynamic content, which will feature in the display.
Positive Currents: Forgotten Stories and Future Voices of the Firth of Forth is the product of the Cry of the Forth project, funded by National Lottery Heritage Fund and the Association of Independent Museums (AIM).and is part of Scotland’s Year of Stories 2022.
