Dundee Design Festival 2019!

 

We are thrilled to launch our 2019 Dundee Design Festival theme: LIVEABLE / LOVEABLE CITIES

The 2019 festival will explore and play with the similarities and differences between the concept and understanding of Liveable and Loveable in the context of the cities in which we live.

To build and inform the 2019 programme, we are asking you to answer 2 questions:

What would make your city more liveable?

What would make your city more loveable?

You can answer the questions for yourself here: www.dundeedesignfestival.com

As a member of the global UNESCO City of Design Network, we aren’t just looking for responses from Dundee, but from around the world. In a first for the Dundee Design Festival, our two questions have been translated into six other languages – each chosen for their prominence in Dundee and within the UNESCO City of Design Network – Polish, Arabic, Mandarin, Russian, French and Spanish.

We believe that design has the opportunity to impact our lives positively and alongside showcasing beautiful design, the festival has always told the stories of how design changes lives. As a festival, we want to use our public platform to have these discussions and to explore what as a city and as designers, we can and need, to do better. In partnership with Creative Dundee and co-curated by Agency of None, Dundee Design Festival 2019 will try to uncover some of those common feelings about the cities in which we live through a programme of workshops, events, exhibitions and talks. Dates and location tbc, stay tuned for further announcements!
