From the Wall of RARB, ideas, quotes and comments from the creative people of Dundee
WHAT VALUE DOES MY WORK CREATE?
Uses a critical eye
Challenging the status quo
Brings people together
Offers an alternate view on situations
Creates space for anything to be imagined
WHAT VALUES DOES DUNDEES ARTS AND CULTURAL ECOLOGY CREATE?
Multiple creative organisations with individual identities
Builds all our resilience
What is the environmental strategy?
Although 48 million of V&A building is not very sustainable
A more sustainable future ( potentially ) as our primary resource is our imagination
Source of innovation for citizens
Too big —– need to define value
Divided artistic groups who struggle to connect
There is an argument to be made that there is nothing of value that hasn’t come from ART & CULTURAL ECOLOGY.
In Dundee everything from industry through to sport and into the everyday has been influenced/ sculpted/ designed/ inspired by the cultural and creative communities and in this sense it could be viewed as the most valuable commodity of all.
