In March 2012, as soon as night fell, residents and visitor in Edinburgh were treated to building sized projections inspired by the Scottish Enlightenment at historic locations across Edinburgh’s city centre.

Edinburgh, City of Literature Trust commissioned new writing from six fantastic writers, pieces which spoke to the location and the quotation being projected. Enjoy once more a treat for your eyes and your ears with short films of the projections and recordings of the stories, read by the authors.

You can also follow a trail of the sites where the images were projected, join David Hicks from Edinburgh World Heritage for a guided tour of them; find out more about the quotations and why we’ve chosen them and explore the Enlightenment with our handy reading list. Be truly enlightened by the official EnLIGHTen site.
