Artwork Installation in Pennan
Fort Fiddes at Cullykhan Bay, near Pennan, will host a four-day installation of artwork called "Peace Camp" from Thursday 19th July to Sunday 22nd July as part of a UK-wide cultural project linked to the Olympic Games.
"Peace Camp" is a collaborative project for the London 2012 Festival and City of Culture 2013, inspired by the ancient idea of an Olympic Truce.
Fort Fiddes is one of only eight national sites (the other Scottish site is on the Isle of Lewis) chosen as a location for the series of coastal installations appearing from dusk until dawn. Fort Fiddes is a stunning location for this spectacular event which brings together history, art and a sense of place. Peace Camp will highlight the beauty of Aberdeenshire and will also attract extra visitors to the area over four days of activity, with a mix of national and local events.
The glowing encampments of tents will be set against some of the most breathtaking scenery of the coastline, with visitors able to wander freely through the installation of softly-illuminated tents.
