Dundee was designated a UNESCO City of Design in 2014. As a city where design is part of our DNA, Dundee is engaging citizens in design and championing Dundee’s designers locally and globally. It is our aim to use outstanding design to make Dundee thrive as one of the best places in the world.
Our priorities are:
- Celebrate and demonstrate the impact of design, engaging citizens in design, the work of designers and opportunities for co-design
- Champion Dundee’s designers by promoting their talent, supporting their creative and commercial success, and involving them in decisions
- Actively participate in the UNESCO Creative Cities Network/ Collaborate and share in developing projects and learning from other UNESCO Cities of Design
