Creative Dundee

Festival of the Future 2022

Festival of the Future is back, celebrating shared experiences, connecting with nature, health and wellbeing, and celebrating and protecting our spaces and places.

The fourth edition of Festival of the Future takes place this October—the University of Dundee’s flagship festival programme that celebrates and enhances collaboration between science, arts, and culture. They’re looking forward to welcoming you to live, in-person events this year, all of which were designed with the purpose of celebrating being together again and connecting with nature.

Throughout the festival you can experience the tranquil and natural spaces of Dundee through walks, talks, workshops, exhibitions, and performances. From forest bathing and building your own mini garden, to a promenade performance experience with sound, installation, projection, and light amongst the calmness of nature at Dundee’s Botanic Garden.

Growing Together: Community Culture Crops

Creative Dundee are delighted to be hosting a panel discussion exploring how community growing has taken root across the city, curated in association with Eden Project.

Join us on Fri 14 October, 5:00-6:30pm, and hear from local growers who are enabling communities to cultivate their own produce, harness creativity, and connect with the natural environment—all of which impact our wellbeing and sense of belonging.

Hosted by Eilish Victoria of Creative Dundee and Caishlan Sweeney of Eden Project, our speakers include:
