We’ve been inspired with over 40 applications from extremely talented makers in the city, so much so that we will now be supporting four artists instead of three as we initially set out to do!

“My work for The Full Picture will discuss the barriers which young artists of colour face as they make Dundee their home while examining my own connections to the city, its history, and its place within my identity as a mixed-race artist“
“My research will focus on investigating the barriers that Dundee creatives face by interviewing both current creatives to find out what has driven them and enabled them to continue making, and ‘lapsed’ creatives to find out what their difficulties have been“
