Collective will open a major new centre for contemporary art in 2018 following a five-year redevelopment of the City Observatory on Calton Hill. While closed for redevelopment Collective, continues to programme work and activity which explores its new home.

For Edinburgh Art Festival, artist Katie Orton will lead a participatory tour for 7-11 years olds exploring the sights and landmarks of Calton Hill, whilst thinking about their relationship to different types of time, the history of timepieces and the science of telescopes and clocks. Encouraging thought, discussion and creativity, the workshop will engage children with the history of timekeeping on Calton Hill through movement and play.
