Curious Edinburgh photo presented to US President

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The Curious Edinburgh app, created by Niki Vermeulen, Senior Lecturer in History and Sociology of Science, allows users to complete virtual walking tours across Edinburgh, sharing stories from the city’s colourful history.

One such tour is the BLM Mural Trail, which was created in response to the Black Lives Matter (BLM) protests happening across the world last year. The trail was curated by Creative Producer Wezi Mhura, who wanted to provide a platform for creatives of Black and Asian heritage to celebrate their work. More than 30 artworks – in a wide variety of formats and genres – were created by Scottish-based artists, writers and musicians and installed across Scotland.

The mural can be found in Gilmore Place. Photo taken by Melissa Highton.
