QR Code Art Trail 2024

In Collaboration with Girvan Academy, The Girvan Arts Festival organisers asked the pupils in the Expressive Arts department to come up with a number of locations in Girvan that could be inspirational to photographers, artists. writers and poets, or even sculptors, as seen through their eyes. The pupils then displayed QR codes at these locations around the town, linking the places to to the photographs they’d shot.

We hope that you will visit the sites they photographed, and perhaps be inspired to pen a poem, draw a sketch, write a short story or snap a photograph with your own take on it. Unfortunately the codes themselves have all gone, but you can find all the locations on our map below, along with links to the photographs, and their location on Google Maps.

We’d be delighted if you’d send in any image you take, a word doc of any prose or poetry you write, or a photograph of any artwork you create. We’ll try and put a collage of any work received on the website before next year’s festival.
