This will celebrate and explore the diverse contribution women have made to Scottish history and society.

"Quines" is a collaboration between EDGE artists inspired by the poems of Gerda Stevenson in her book of the same name.

Gerda said: "Women need to be heard, you know we've been silenced and not heard too long and it's changing and it's good."
