A collaborative art installation exploring migration by artist Kate MacKay in which hundreds of silk swallows travelled to communities and schools in Edinburgh, Beijing and Delhi. They picked up haikus (short poems) on their wings about people’s remembered or imagined places.

The swallows and their stories returned to the Edinburgh Festival for an installation at Summerhall in August 2013.  The exhibition has continued to evolved, inspiring many of the projects here, and featuring at the Southbank Centre in London in 2015.

Exhibited at Summerhall Edinburgh 2013, and The Southbank London 2015
