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:

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.
