A Culture of Care - the University of Dundee Culture Day
The University of Dundee’s annual Culture Day is a stimulating mix of talks and presentations across a wide range of subjects united by a common theme and is once again being held as part of the University's Festival of the Future. Marking the 75th anniversary of the National Health Service, this year’s event will explore the theme of care. How do we care for our cultural assets, and how can culture and the arts help us to care for others and ourselves? We’ll hear from a range of speakers from across the University. Culture Day takes place in room 1.36 of the Baxter Suite on the first floor of the Tower Building. The event is free and you are welcome to dip in and out or enjoy the whole programme. The full programme will be announced soon. Highlights include Allan Kennedy (History) on caring for the poor in Early Modern Scotland; Kevin Frediani (Botanic Garden) on the new Good Grief Memorial Garden; Matthew Jarron (Museums) on the history of the Tayside Medical History Museum; Graham Pullin (DJCAD) on the more caring approach to design fostered by his Studio Ordinary initiative; and Vicky Tully (Medicine) on incorporating wellbeing and green health into the medical curriculum for students.
