A tiny selection from the last few years, of the vast amount of creative community engagement work, that I planned, funded, led, managed, deployed and/or co-delivered for Dundee City Council.
The Little Theatre, Wellgate Park: positive engagement to tackle vandalism.
Urban space mosaics that were made together with site users, replaced the graffiti – and changed the culture of use of the space
Creative engagement at annual ‘Garden Party’ event:
painted pebbles from rock garden party! Just for fun…
Environment workshops in Duntrune Garden:
spiral made from eucalyptus prunings – summer activity session
Creative engagement during Dundee’s Baxter Park restoration project:
11 sq metre mosaic made with all the park users we could get our hands on: part of the multi-million pound 5-year park restoration project
It seems like we were all into circles and spirals!
Some of these activities were first-contact, others were part of very long term engagement processes. All of them explored participants’ relationships to their own places and people.
…and all were fascinating experiences.
