Open Call: Dundee Christmas Trees 2023

UNESCO City of Design Dundee are looking for four designers to create a sustainable outdoor Christmas Tree this festive season.

December is creeping closer and UNESCO City of Design Dundee, in partnership with Dundee City Council, are once again searing for five designers or creative practitioners to create bespoke and unique ‘Christmas Trees’ as part of Dundee’s Festive Celebrations!

These trees will form part of a display located outside City Churches and rather than simply decorating a tree, the brief asks designers to create a tree which tells its own story. The project is seeking creative, unique designs which respond to the concept of a central Christmas Tree in festive celebrations while celebrating the diversity of the winter period from different perspectives.

Considering the environmental impact of large-scale festivities, all elements of the tree and its decoration must be made from 100% reused or recycled materials.

This opportunity is open to:

Deadline for submissions: Midday, Wed 27 September

Each designer or creative practitioner will be awarded £2,500 to cover all materials, production, installation and fees.
