Born To Be Wide and Dundee’s Place Partnership are pleased to announce a special seminar event at the McManus Museum & Art Gallery on Thursday 14 April, exploring approaches to strengthening the local music scene.
Titled 'Sound of Dundee: Reimagining Our City', the panel will feature speakers from a cross-section of the music community. The evening will open with world-renowned songwriter Gary Clark, (who has worked with stars including Natalie Imbruglia, Melanie C and Lloyd Cole) in conversation about his career in music and the long-standing relationship with his Tayside hometown.
Following the Q&A, Gary will take part in a discussion, which also includes local musician Katie Lynch of duo ST MARTiiNS and DF Concerts' Dave Corbet. An additional speaker will be announced in the coming weeks.
Following the seminar, there will be an opportunity for attendees and speakers to socialise and continue the conversation.
The event is part of the city-wide work being undertaken by Dundee’s Place Partnership team towards producing recommendations for the development of music in the city. The project launched in February with the Dundee Music Survey, which has received almost 600 responses to date. The questionnaire will be live until Monday 18 April, and there will be an opportunity to participate on the night.
