The Orchard City posters celebrate the people and values that make Dundee an Orchard City. They show different activities from the first year of the project and include participants from the DUO network.
Since first exhibiting the posters as part of our Orchard City launch in 2014 – see here for press coverage – the posters have been touring the city (and other cities) in a variety of arts and community venues.
A set of Orchard City posters were gifted to the city in 2017. They’re now on permanent display in Arthurstone Community Library.
The posters, with related talks and workshops, have been shown in the following contexts (listed in reverse chronological order):
