“Trading Wisdom is an Art Event in Inverkeithing that celebrates both the grittily lyrical wisdom of my mum’s generation and also the shops and businesses in the High Street. I was curious about what happens if you put the two together.” Rosie Gibson

Rosie Gibson has collaborated with older people in Inverkeithing to create wonderful works of art incorporating their nuggets of wisdom! Find each of the 10 works incorporated into the trade of one of the 10 local shops.
