DUNDEE BID FOR UK CITY OF CULTURE 2017
As you may know, Dundee is one of eleven cities bidding to become UK City of Culture in 2017 and several key agencies across the city – including Go Dundee – have formed a partnership group to help prepare the bid. The partners wish to involve as many people as possible in the bid process, including people who live, work or study in Dundee or have just visited the city at some time.
A website called We Dundee has been created to allow people to formally back Dundee’s bid and to contribute to the bid by saying what surprises them about the city. The aim was to secure at least 2,017 contributions before the bid deadline of 30 April and this was achieved with a couple of days to go! The bid for UK City of Culture status is a tremendous opportunity to put Dundee on the map and to demonstrate the city’s outstanding success in using culture as an effective element of regeneration.
YOUNG PEOPLE’S FILM ‘OUR DUNDEE’ NOW ONLINE!
As part of the Dundee Wave of Change project, Go Dundee helped a group of young people from The Shore – an outstanding young person’s venue in the city centre – to make a short film about people’s experiences of life in Dundee and their views about the city’s future. This short film was premiered at DCA on 7th October 2012 as part of the Scottish Mental Health Arts & Film Festival.
We are pleased to say that the film is now available to watch here as part of the new Dundee Wave of Change web showcase.
The young people from The Shore worked with film maker Jonathan Charles of D Fie Foe – an independent production company on the cutting edge of film within multi-media.
