About Message from the Skies

Message from the Skies returns to Edinburgh’s Hogmanay on Tuesday 1 January with a celebration of Scotland’s literature and asks six Scottish writers to each write a love letter to Europe marking Scotland’s shared cultural, historic and social connections with this family of nations. The letters will be projected onto iconic buildings and landmarks around Edinburgh animated by a range of different composers and projection artists.

The writers are Billy Letford, Chitra Ramaswamy, Kapka Kassabova, Louise Welsh, Stef Smith and William Dalrymple from the worlds of poetry, journalism, fiction, travel, history and theatre.

Message from the Skies runs until Friday 25 January 2018 and is developed in partnership with Edinburgh City of Literature and supported by Creative Scotland through the Scottish Government’s Edinburgh Festivals EXPO fund.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Message from the Skies are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
