  3. 3. What surprised you about Dundee? Responses: - The city centre, all near, and all a mix of new creative spaces and heritage. - The dynamism and the collaboration between city, local authority and Creative Dundee. - The passion and energy. - Incorporating creative sector in the city development and planning. - Your work with culture networking outside and within the municipality. - Participation appears very open and accessible, e.g. print makers studio is open to 9pm at DCA and very cheap. - A very strong cultural and artistic town. - Social female impact till today. - The Dundee Partnership. - World class art exhibitions and architects. - Design - computer games - didn’t know these strategies were here. Success in organising. - The entrepreneurship. - International atmosphere and openness (met creatives from Hong Kong, Iraq, US, Canada - many living here, but fewer Europeans?). - Very strong network among the different creative individuals/institutions in Dundee. - People love working in the city… ‘I came for a 3 year contract and I’m here 15 years later’. - The diversity old and new culture in a mix. - Big drive to action. - Bottom up approach, DIY approach. Diversity of actions and initiatives. Dundee does a lot with few resources (thanks to its people). - All the little bakeries/cafes and their own printed cups etc - identity, pride, tradition very strong, people very chatty and friendly. - Private initiatives/enterprises which think and work beyond their job boundaries - linking to others/working in partnership. - The jute history. - That the strategy, economic resources (except riverside reform) and organisation is really similar to Granollers.
  4. 4. What will you do as a result of this Dundee study visit? Responses: - Get the creative segment to work closer with entrepreneurs. - Get to work! Organise and lean on other relevant politicians. - Start a Pecha Kucha night. - Start to network on a more serious level with stakeholders and within the municipality. - Create link between local authority in charge of unknown developments and creative hubs in large CCIs projects. - Try to convince the University to open a video games department. - Push local authority for co-ordinated action and continue work. - New structure of organisation. - Come back. - Try to convince the politicians about the importance of cultural venues, with DCA/Rep as examples. - Network my city to Dundee for new project. - Ask questions of people in regards to self perception and emotive civic pride. - Adopt the plan of the CCI strategy. Learn from We Dundee. - Look into strategies for CCIs in small cities/rural regions. - Involve more the private sector to support the existing initiatives (vs top down approach). Contact the comics space. - Maybe come in May for the creative festival (and hubs?). - Keep in contact and try to find partnerships for one or different projects to grow cultural, creative and open the city. - Write a study report. - Investigate more: the games industry stats and application, the smile door, social inclusion - homelessness (may follow up with EC Rep Edinburgh for ANSIP visit). - Feel more comfortable when I prepare planning, documents, programmes, etc. - Different approach to communication in reference to our strategies. - Work on a clear strategy for my project that includes CCIs.
