Forgotten Doors

Forgotten Doors

Remembering iconic buildings of Dumfries through image, poetry and reminiscence.

Forgotten Doors was curated by Hugh Bryden, Hugh McMillan and Stuart A Paterson, and featured seven of Dumfries’ long-lost buildings, brought back to life in a day of poetry and art, plus an eighth ‘Future Door’. Large, free-standing representations of the forgotten doors appeared around the town in their former homes. Local poets and writers contributed new writing in response to these forgotten places, and a poets tour guided visitors around the town centre.

What do you remember about these well kent places?

The project was part funded by the Regional Arts Fund supported by DG Unlimited and DG Council.
