#ReformationDundee Public Space Painting Drop In
This is gonna be fun, bright and very inspiring! Looking forward to being a part of #ReformationDundee & having people drop in to help me paint my ‘Dream Big’ section of Reform Street. 💚 Would you like to help colour some cobbles & paint your dreams? Stop by!
This project is all about painting the cobblestones of Reform Street with colour and pattern, inspirational words, designs and images to ‘create a vibrant and uplifting atmosphere for the wider community, with a focus on mental health.
‘RE-FORMATION is a community art project celebrating and promoting young people’s ideas, skills and achievements as part of Scottish Governments’s Year of Young People 2018. It is a large scale city wide partnership project, co-designed and delivered by young people from school and community groups across Dundee.’
‘The art installation is an ambitious and exciting display, demonstrating young people’s perspective of youth culture.
10 local community groups, have been involved in this wonderful project, which has been organised by Laura Cooney and her brilliant team at The Corner Dundee ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜💕
Sunday’s public painting space will be hosted by Creature Emporium so if you fancy painting a cobble too, and miss helping me on Saturday, he’ll be creating the second public panel at the top end of the project!
“Occupying the space where science and culture collide, the Festival of the Future organised by University of Dundee between 17 – 21 October, will bring together design music, art, science, food, books and theatre. They’re working with partners across the city and throughout Scotland to bring you brand new commissions, world-class performers, authors and the best events for kids.
Take a guided stroll along Discovery Walk and find out more about the history, design and stories around the ten bronze plaques that celebrate the gifts that Dundee has given the world and those inspiring individuals who were behind some of the world’s most ground breaking discoveries and contributions to science and society.
With phase three of Discovery Walk starting soon you will have the chance to talk to the creators of the walk, Suzanne Scott and Kelly-Ann Marr, about who you think should be the next individual to be immortalised with a bronze plaque.
You will also receive a copy of the specially created Discover Walk Guide book to take away.
Meet at the corner of Slessor Gardens nearest to the V&A and wear appropriate clothing and footwear for all weathers.”
