Art Night’s Inwith programme shines the spotlight on Dundee’s homegrown art and communities programming.
This summer Art Night will deliver its first full iteration in a city outside London. On the evening of Saturday 24 June from 7pm until late, ten major commissions by artists including Saoirse Amira Anis, Tai Shani, and Danielle Brathwaite-Shirley will be presented in civic and public spaces across Dundee.
We can’t wait to see the Art Night spotlight shine on these local, grassroots organisations alongside Dundee’s world-renowned cultural hubs. Don’t miss it!
The Inwith programme:
Celebrate locally grown food and friendship at the Community Gardens Open Day with Dundee Community Garden Network/Grow Dundee, featuring gigs, exhibitions, bug hunting, sun printing and more across the city’s gardens.
Visit Dundee Heritage Trust’s Creative Communities Network installation Aurora Australis, exploring RRS Discovery’s polar collection and the array of local and global issues raised by climate change.
Co-designed by Connecting Women Project participants at Dundee Women’s Aid (DWA), Journey to Connection showcases a collaged reflection of each contributor’s personal journey.
Join Federation Gallery for Keiller Nights an evening of glam rock, funk and disco led by The Bad Kisses.
Visit the wonderful world of Hot Chocolate Trust for their interactive installation LTD Edition showcasing young people’s art and culture.
In the lead up to Art Night and following on from the festival, join us for two special events exploring how artists and communities creatively use and reimagine space in and around the city. At Taking Space / Making Space, we’ll hear from some of the groups featured in the Inwith Programme alongside the organisers behind Art Night.
