Amps Community Ideas Fund

Amp up the community – together we can make Dundee even better!

Creative communities are vital to Dundee’s growing reputation as a global cultural hub. We’ve created the Amps Supporters project to involve everyone in creating a better way to build Dundee’s local creative scene, our communities and the future of the city.

When becoming an Amp, your support enables us to grow an innovative Community Ideas Fund – a cash award each October to kick-start a new collaboration between two or more Amps to benefit Dundee.

50% of your support goes towards the Fund, so the more Amps there are, the bigger the Fund for Dundee is!

Amps decide which project to award the funding to. Funding and voting is open to all Amps wherever you are.

To meet other Amps and find collaborators, join us at our next:
