Lost Landscapes was an ambitious project that traverses boundaries between art, ecology, archaeology and local history to explore historical ways of life through the lens of contemporary art. This programme ran from January 2011 and saw the installation of seven diverse exhibitions and an inclusive education community outreach programme that has involved over 1600 individuals to date. Community groups we have worked with include adults with mental health issues, children with severe complex needs, young fathers and their children, the elderly, patients in our local dementia ward and school groups from both primary and secondary institutions.

Reading the Landscape

Lost Landscapes: ‘Reading the Landscape’ is an innovative educational and participatory initiative supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Engage, and Tyne and Esk Leader which brings together art, archaeology and history in a multi-layered exploration of the East Lothian Landscape. The Peter Potter Gallery is also grateful for the core and project funding support of East Lothian Council, Creative Scotland and The Robertson Trust.
