The Friends' Anthology Project
The Friends of the University of Dundee Botanic Gardens, situated on Riverside Drive, are offering local writers, poets, artists and photographers a unique opportunity to showcase their work by submitting it for inclusion in an anthology scheduled to appear in the spring of 2019.
As Mark McGilchrist, Chair of the Friends, explained: “Gardens have provided inspiration for writers and artists down the centuries so how better to celebrate all that Dundee’s very own treasure of a garden has to offer?”
The objectives of the Friends are to:
- support the continuing development of the Garden
- provide finance for specific projects
- promote the Garden as a recreational and educational facility
The Friends' Anthology supports these purposes by:
- advertising the merits of the Garden to a larger audience and thereby increasing its use and support
- developing a broader social and geographic community by integrating new elements and areas (artistic, geographic and social)
- showing new ways of appreciating the merits of the Garden
- confirming the importance of the Garden
The Anthology project has it's own web site which can be found here.
