Creative Dumfries: Creative Place Nominee
A joint bid was led by The Stove, Big Burns Supper and Electric Theatre Workshop to attract investment of £150,000 to the town to support the development of a Creative Place through a year-long celebration of Creativity to help support Dumfries town centre.
Uniquely, the bid was developed by the arts organisations independently, which mirrors the trend that has been happening in Dumfries over the last three years. Artists and their Organisations are leading the way in the regeneration of place, community and identity.
The town was shortlisted for the coveted Creative Place Award for 2014.
