Six independent cultural organisations in Dundee, led by V&A Dundee, have launched a £1m cultural recovery fund. It has been kickstarted by the Northwood Charitable Trust which has offered £500k in match funding to other donors, already attracting £200k from private individuals and businesses. Beneficiaries include Dundee Contemporary Arts, Dundee Heritage Trust, Dundee Rep and Scottish Dance Theatre, Dundee Science Centre, as well as V&A Dundee itself. Christopher Thomson, Trustee of the Northwood Charitable Trust said “for us, championing the cultural recovery in Dundee is not only about safeguarding our world-class venues but also, importantly, ensuring that their wider economic impact and learning and community programmes continue to benefit everyone in the city.” V&A Dundee, M + H
