Why successful cities make creative places

A perfect example of a city that is re-defining its identity through culture is Dundee. Dundee Rep Theatre recently won the TMA Award for Best Musical Production in the UK for their show Sweeney Todd. Dundee Contemporary Arts is a thriving, much-loved local centre for uncompromising contemporary visual arts at the heart of the city, while festivals such as the recent NEoN Digital Arts Festival break new ground and reach new audiences. The vision to establish the V&A in Dundee offers the opportunity to re-invigorate its waterfront and build Dundee’s growing reputation in the visual arts, design and games fields.’
