Dundee is bidding to be the UK City of Culture in 2017, a competition run by the UK government which uses culture and creativity to transform communities. It’s an opportunity to remind ourselves what an astonishing place Dundee is, and what remarkable people live and work here.
We Dundee is a way to show the tremendous imagination and enthusiasm of people from all walks of life across the city, and demonstrate the difference that becoming UK City of Culture could make to us individually and as a city.
Working with Fleet members the city wants to show the competition judges that there’s more to Dundee than they (or we) might think – that it’s a city full of surprises. We want to give them 2,017 reasons to think of us as the best place for the City of Culture to be.
