Creative Dundee

We run regular Amps events throughout the year for people to meet-up, get ideas funded and grow our community.

We meet-up regularly to share news and discuss how we can collectively have a positive impact on Dundee’s creative scene. 

As well as meetings and networking events, we have an online forum on Slack and Facebook to share inspiration, ideas, discussions and challenges. Often, Amps are invited to support the development of Creative Dundee’s project ideas, through focus groups and consultations.

Regular Amps events

Part of the benefits from being an Amps Supporter are the regular events we run throughout the year. There are great opportunities to meet and connect with other Amps, find new collaborators and develop ideas for the Community Ideas Fund, share your news and upcoming opportunities, and get behind the scenes insights into all the different things that Creative Dundee is developing in the city, but also to simply get together, celebrate and reflect on the work that we all do to benefit the city.

“Amps is an invitation to become part of a community.

[…] There is something very special in this city, and Creative Dundee has an unique place within that and is the linchpin in a lot of those relationships

[…] and that invitation to people to become a supporter and be part of something, is quite distinct, and I think very smart.”

Beth Bate, Director of DCA

Amps Breakfasts

Our weekly Amps Breakfasts are a great opportunity to keep in touch with each other, share updates on what we are all doing and what’s happening across the city!

Every Tuesday, from 9am – 10am, we meet on Zoom and have small group chats around different topics. We also invite you to Open Your Drawers and show us inside your workspace, studio, sketchbook etc. If you want to talk about your work or give us a virtual tour, we’d love to hear from you!

We also look forward to bringing everyone together in the same room again soon and host the Breakfasts at various locations around the city. See photos of previous breakfast here.

Amps Meet Ups

Our Amps Meet-Ups are great mixer events to connect with new people, share ideas for the Amps Community Ideas Fund and find new collaborators in the city!

Join us for a social evening and hear inspirational talks from other Amps about their inspirations, visions and creative ideas to benefit the city. There will also be informal times to (randomly) meet with new people and catch-up with old connections. See photos of previous meet-ups here.

Amps Forum

At the end of the year, we get together to celebrate and reflect on the past year, for an evening of play and fun, and hopefully over food and drinks for this year 2020!

The Amps Forum is also when you decide which project to award the Community Ideas Fund – 50% of your cash support goes towards the Fund and anyone from the Amps Network can pitch their innovative, experimental and collaborative ideas on the night. Funding and voting is open to all Amps wherever you are.

For more information on how to apply and the previously awarded projects visit the Community Ideas Fund page.
