Welcome for Scottish Government commitment to V&A funding

17 August 2009


Marlyn Glen, who has campaigned for Scottish Government finance for the project, today welcomed a commitment from the Scottish Government that it would provide funding towards the cost of the V&A presence in Dundee.

Ms. Glen said,

" I welcome the guarantee of public funding as an expression of confidence in the city.

"A V&A outlet would be Dundee’s most ambitious cultural institution in decades in its drive to be acclaimed as a contemporary creative hub.

" It would become an exceptional 21st. century cultural destination"

The proposals to link Dundee with the V&A have been in discussion in 2007.
