Is it working? Part of the One Nation Arts Emergency Planning Tour led by the Response Art Rescue Bureau (RARB)

We are delighted to invite you to take part in the One Nation Arts Emergency Planning Tour and help draw up a six-point survival strategy for the creative community of Dundee.

Our city is under close scrutiny, it’s being measured and culturally evaluated. But the arts community, being part of this culture, is facing change like never before and is being urged to draw up an urgent “survival strategy” *. So is it ready to be measured? To what end and to whose values?

In an attempt to understand the community we want to save, help make visible the sets of relations required to thrive. Together we can define the building blocks required to bring about a long-term strategy to create a thriving future for creatives in Dundee?

A week of collective thinking, collective making and collective action

* 03/07/2013 Harriet Harman MP, Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, has demanded Culture Secretary Maria Miller forge a ‘survival strategy’ for arts and culture outside London. 


Discussions happening throughout the week, drop in anytime to help construct Dundee’s six point survival plan. Free survival kits will be available – limited numbers.
