A host of talented young Dundonian entrepreneurs gathered on Saturday to promote some of Dundee’s most impressive examples of social enterprise.
Dundee Social Enterprise Network’s pop-up shop in Albert Square gave visitors an insight into a range of activities and ventures including puppet-making, weaving, origami, and bookbinding.
This event dovetails with Dundee’s Ignite festival which runs throughout May to celebrate the creativity the city has to offer.
Sheila Newcombe, development officer with Dundee Social Enterprise Network, told The Courier: “We wanted to showcase Dundee’s creative social enterprises and have a bit of fun.
“It’s a space for them to network with each other and also fits within the larger picture of the Ignite Festival within Dundee.
“May is about creativity, so this is just an opportunity to promote social enterprises and get them out there.
“There is definitely a vibe and a buzz in Dundee, but as well as young creatives, there’s also more established social enterprises.”
The puppet workshop was run by How it Felt, a puppet building and film making group that works in the third sector.
It is run by Deborah Chapman.
