Print Festival Scotland is set to embark on its biggest project to date at this year’s Dundee Design Festival (Thur 25th – Mon 29th May.) One of the festival’s most-anticipated events is PRINT CITY celebrating Dundee’s historical association with print and the vibrant contemporary culture of printmaking that exists in the city today. Visitors to Dundee Design Festival will be able to watch the artists at work and take part in the build process which will see 1000 pieces of screen-printed cardboard slotted together to form an evolving and dazzling spectacle. Print City will be built by artists and volunteers for the duration of the five day festival and expected to grow to be large enough to fill one of the 2000sq ft galleries with many pieces up to 5m high. The mass design and print process co-ordinated by printmaker Scott Hudson and artist Paul Harrison will be fabricated on site inside West Ward Works, a former printworks in the heart of Dundee’s old mill district. The project has been conceived for Dundee Design Festival by Print Festival Scotland, a partnership between Dundee Contemporary Arts and University of Dundee's Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design.
Dundee Design Festival is hosted by UNESCO Dundee City of Design and supported by Event Scotland and the National Lottery through Creative Scotland’s Open Project Fund.
