April Make/Share – Line Up

Make/Share is a free monthly night, bringing people together to gain a behind the scenes insight into creative processes, held on the second Wednesday of each month, at The Beer Kitchen Dundee, from 7pm – 8.30pm.

Join us on Wed 12th April from 7pm and hear short talks by local creative talents about the processes behind turning their idea, project or product into reality and how they engage with the city’s communities.

Speakers explore how their project or product has evolved, progressed, changed and transformed, how they experiment, what their biggest challenges have been and how they overcame them. After the talks we have a short opportunity for any questions and discussion, and for you to share your upcoming events with the group. We also invite you to stay after the talks to network with others.

We’re delighted that The Beer Kitchen is our official sponsor venue for Make/Share and supports the event with a complementary beer or soft drink at arrival.

You don’t need to sign up, just come along!

Scott Hudson & Dr Paul Liam Harrison

Printmakers Dr Paul Liam Harrison and Scott Hudson have been co ordinating Print Festival Scotland since its inaugural year in 2013.

This large scale immersive installation of an abstract urban landscape is a celebration and exploration of Dundee’s rich history and vibrant contemporary culture in Print and Printmaking.
