Dundee Arts Cafe is Back with a Bang!

That’s right – Dundee Arts Cafe is back. Your regular monthly conversation about the arts will return to the cafe at The McManus: Dundee’s Art Gallery and Museum on Tuesday 2nd September 2014. A look at creativity in Dundee and the role it is playing in driving the regeneration of the city will launch the new series.

Gillian Easson (Creative Dundee) will look at how Dundee is a city with a major transformation under way and how its shape, size and scope present a number of opportunities for its citizens as well as comparing some of the creative initiatives happening across Dundee and consider some projects happening around the world, which are helping shape cities of the future.

This will be followed by a further eight talks that share creative and cultural ideas in a relaxed and inclusive environment.

The full programme of the 2014/15 Dundee Arts Cafe series will be available soon in printed and electronic form.
