Follow Me! Project

This event follows up on Creative Dundee’s project Follow Me! Stories from Stobswell. Follow Me! is a project connecting people, places and stories from around the city. The aim is to capture the stories behind Dundee’s cultural hotspots, the places most important to local people, told through their own voices. Working in collaboration with a designer, photographer and film-maker, Creative Dundee took Follow Me! to Celebration in the Park at Baxter Park last summer and asked the community to share their favourite hotspots. Read more about Follow Me! project here.

All content collected were then featured on this digital map below. We’d love to collect more insights from you and populate this crowd-sourced map with your own cherished places, share your favourite hotspots in Stobswell and around and tell us why they are so precious to you – by completing short questionnaire below the map!
