V&A at Dundee

We had a good turn out this week for a talk by Graham McKee, Project Leader of the V&A at Dundee initiative, on the background that brought the project to Dundee and the potential implications for the city and the wider art and design community of Scotland.

He said that the V&A at Dundee will be an international centre for design, building on Scotland’s global reputation as a leader in creativity and innovation. The new venue will showcase excellence in design and provide a valuable resource for students of art, design and architecture.

The talk and Q&A session was followed by a reception in the café area of the hall - thanks to all caterers. It was a good opportunity to meet new people and to see some familiar faces who have been in hiding/ on holiday/ snowed under with work/ or just snowed in for most of the winter. Plans were discussed for future developments in ENKCA and all in all, it was lovely, sociable way to spend a Spring evening. We hope to have more, similar events in the months ahead.

The 50 /50 lottery was drawn at Eassie School by Mrs Mitchell, and this month’s 1st prize winner is Anne Thorpe of Charleston, who won £74.67. Runners up, Ann Wilson of Harrryhill, and Carol Tough of Broughty Ferry won £9.33.
