Dundee City of Culture Bid Send Off #wedundee

It was great to attend the Dundee City of Culture Bid Send Off event at the City Square this lunchtime.

In the 12 years I have been a member of the City Council, I have never seen such excellent cross-party support and co-operation on a project as we have seen with the City of Culture bid.    The city as a whole is united behind the bid team and we all believe that the City has much to offer in its bid to become UK City of Culture 2017.

My LibDem colleague Alison McInnes MSP also said today, “Dundee has a strong and impressive bid for UK City of Culture 2017.   The city has a great story to tell in terms of its arts and cultural offering that makes it a very strong contender to be UK City of Culture 2017  and I wish Dundee every success.”

Here's a couple of photographs and a short video of today's Bid Send Off event:
