38 people kicked off January 2013 with a Fun-a-Day, that means 1,178 pieces of art were created in Dundee in just one month. It is really pretty amazing that all that fun and art was instigated by just one person – artist Morgan Cahn. During 2013 Morgan moved away from sunny Dundee, but Hazel Saunderson, Rebecca Grieg and Theresa Lynn decided to carry on the fun in 2014. It was another great success, with over 50 people taking part and 33 of those bringing work to exhibit. In 2015 Hazel and Rebecca returned, opening the project to returning fun makers and to new ones, with a successful exhibition in WASPS artist studios, and a busy Twitter feed. Fun A Day 2016 was carried on by Rebecca and previous fun maker; Sam Baxter, which finished with a beautiful, funny, and a creative exhibition by Dundee fun makers. Sam Baxter is continuing the Fun A Day project for 2017, hoping to reach new and familiar fun makers, into a FUN New Year!
We hope that people in Dundee that would like to carry on having fun with us this year, so below is some inspiration to get your creative juices flowing! Do also follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter & Facebook for daily inspiration.
