Dundee has led the way in culture-led regeneration across the last 20 years. By taking a strategic and collaborative approach, culture has been a key driver in the social, economic and cultural development of the city. Whilst the V&A Dundee is a very high profile and recent manifestation of this, there have been many, many others, including Dundee Rep Theatre, the Scottish School of Contemporary Dance, and the city’s designation as a UNESCO Creative City for design. It is also a shadow member of the Global Cultural Districts Network, and is involved in a number of creative and design focused European projects.
A conference on 5th April will aim to understand what investment in the cultural sector deliver can deliver and explore how the ambitions set out in the Tay Cities Programme can be secured by promoting collaboration across the Tay area. It will also examine opportunities that will allow the cultural sector to continue to be a key driver of economic, social and cultural regeneration in Dundee and the Tay area.
Pamela Reid, Director at ekosgen, will be presenting at the conference. She will talk about the findings of our evaluation of the economic and social impact of Dundee’s Cultural Strategy and Action Plan, and set it in the context of place-based regeneration. Please contact Pamela on firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more about our work in this area.
The event is open to anyone who would like to attend. You will find more details and registration information by clicking on this link.
