Tayport, Fife, UK

Walking piece details

This is a walking tour of Tayport in 2030 which is based on ideas from community visioning day, Tayport Pop Up 2030, held during COP26, 5 Nov 2021 (https://tayportgarden.org/event/pop-up-tayport-2030-a-visioning-workshop/). It is in a format of a guided audio tour around Tayport, using the izi.travel app.
The tour imagines how, as a community, we helped make Tayport more planet- and people-friendly and offers an inspiration for conversations and community project planning, in Tayport and beyond.
It was created in partnership between PLANT (People Learning About Nature in Tayport) of Tayport Community Trust (https://tayportgarden.org) and CULTIVATE project of Creative Dundee (https://creativedundee.com/cultivate/).
The script was written by Kathleen Gray and Kaska Hempel with feedback from others. Zoë Swann, working with us as a part of CULTIVATE project, created illustrations and the accompanying map. Our tour guide’s voice was brought to life by Taylor Dyson. Memories of the future exercise was inspired by Rob Hopkins, author of From What If to What Is, and the visioning session, by Transition movement’s Pop Up Tomorrow idea.
