The theme for Dundee Design Festival 2019 has been announced: LIVEABLE / LOVEABLE CITIES
Organised by the UNESCO City of Design team, the 2019 festival will explore and play with the similarities and differences between the concept and understanding of Liveable and Loveable in the context of the cities in which we live. To build and inform the 2019 programme, we are asking you to answer 2 questions:
What would make your city more liveable?
What would make your city more loveable?
You can answer the questions for yourself here: www.dundeedesignfestival.com
As a member of the global UNESCO City of Design Network, we aren’t just looking for responses from Dundee, but from around the world. In a first for the Dundee Design Festival, our two questions have been translated into six other languages – each chosen for their prominence in Dundee and within the UNESCO City of Design Network – Polish, Arabic, Mandarin, Russian, French and Spanish.
The festival aims to use its public platform to have these discussions and to explore what as a city and as designers, we can and need, to do better. Co-curated by Agency of None, Dundee Design Festival 2019 will try to uncover some of those common feelings about the cities in which we live through a programme of workshops, events, exhibitions and talks. Dates and location will be announced in due time, stay tuned for further announcements!
