About BAT & Casting the Net


The aim of Borders Arts Trust is to devise and run contemporary arts projects and events in the Scottish Borders.

Casting the Net: coast to inland, is devised and curated by Borders Arts Trust in collaboration with community groups in inland Selkirk and coastal Eyemouth.

The project aims to cast a fresh light on the rich cultural heritage of land and sea. Looking at links between the coast and inland and the flow of ideas in both directions, Casting the Net brings new life to spaces left empty after a decline in the fishing and textiles industries.

Through a series of exhibitions and events the project weaves together in a unique way contemporary art, traditional craft, heritage and local industry.
