About Sharing Not Hoarding

Sharing Not Hoarding is an experimental public art project located in Dundee’s Waterfront Development. It was launched in 2015 as part of the Dundee Commons Festival. The project encourages public participation in the Waterfront Development by engaging with artists and community partners to reflect on Dundee’s past, present and future development.

Using 18 4-sheet billboard posters to create a vibrant dialogue of image, text and social media interactivity, the project provides opportunities for artists and the wider public to participate in the Waterfront Development, to raise critical questions about our collective future, and to celebrate a diversity of voices and visions for the city.

The title, Sharing Not Hoarding, describes our method as well as our aim.

Together we share the city. Together we forge its future.
