Fun a Day has come to Dundee! For those of you not in the know, Fun a Day is a project which involves artists submitting a piece of artwork every day for the month of January.The 31 resulting pieces create a narrative outlining each artist’s journey through the first month of the year. This blog will act like a forum for creative people in Dundee hopefully sparking people’s interest and stimulating conversations and exchanges between creative communities. Taking part in this project would be a fantastic way to kick-off a productive 2012, I can’t wait to see the results!
