Fun A Day Dundee Exhibition 2019

All the colours of the rainbow for this year’s Fun A Day Dundee exhibition at Wasps Meadow Mill Studios.
Here’s my piece “When You Make Time For Nonsense It Will Bring Lots Of Smiles” 

This year I decided to focus on fun, nonsense and exploring colour. I created a colourful world over the month full of quirky scenes that will make you look closely, and possibly ask… why?”
Everyone worked really hard and the space looked amazing! Special shout out out to Sam Baxter Art for organising it all. Not an easy task… co-ordinating artists is like herding sheep sometimes! 😅

Here’s a bit more about the project:

“This year, Fun A Day Dundee are proud to announce that we are supported by the National Lottery through Creative Scotland. With their support, this voluntary run project was able to continue to run, especially with its growing popularity. We are grateful to be recognised and supported, and so happy to be able to make little touches we have wanted for the exhibition, to make it ‘complete’ and that bit more fun for everyone involved.

Fun A Day Dundee encourages anyone and everyone to create/make/have fun each day in January. Each year we document and share our projects with each other online, then celebrate our efforts in a public exhibition following January!

This exhibition will feature over 50 people local and outwith of Dundee, in a wide and wonderful variety of mediums. We have seen around 80-90 people participate during the month, and were more in touch with other Fun A Day projects across the pond via Instagram. Check out the hashtag #funaday (global) and #funadaydundee2019 (local) for this years content. This year we have crochet, photography, songwriting, performance, photography, painting, sculpture, mixed media, stitching, collage, knitting, film making and much more! Participants ages range from under 10 years old to over 60 years.


This year we have live music by Mark Urban on the opening night, including our usual ‘sweet shop’ stand, and art workshops over the weekend to fix that crafty itch once viewing the exhibition! These workshops will be provided by Andrea & Sadie Sayers (local artist duo, mother and daughter, as well as regular FADD participants.)

This exhibition is family friendly.

Opening night Friday 5th April 7pm-9pm
Exhibition Sat 6th, Sun 7th April 10am-7pm.

Big thank you to the lovely Jilly Noble for designing this wonderful poster for our exhibition this year!
