Good news as the college's exhibitions department has secured funding for the Nine Trades project. From their press release:
We are delighted to announce that The Scottish Arts Council awarded Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design Exhibitions with £112.5k of National Lottery funds towards inspiring ‘more, better and wider’ participation in the arts.
‘Nine Trades of Dundee’ is a project engaging those who would not normally participate in the arts by bringing trade and art together. ‘Nine Trades of Dundee’ will commission nine artists to work with trades people in their work places across the city to collaborate on new work. Each selected artist will share the same trade skills as the group they work with. We will keep you posted as the project takes place!
