attracting tourists to DundeeA cultural fund has been launched in Dundee for attracting tourists to new festivals, tourism trails, along with food and drink offers. The Cultural Tourism Fund, fashioned by Scottish Enterprise, forms part of the city’s tourism strategy, which endeavors to make Dundee the best flourishing city in the UK for short cultural breaks. This scheme will enhance Dundee’s status after it became the UK’s first UNESCO City of Design in December 2014. It is also expected that new projects will be built on the success of current festivals like West Fest, which already attract visitors from outside the city.

To quote Paul McCafferty, team leader at Scottish Enterprise for food and drink, tourism and textiles, “Scottish Enterprise has been working closely with Dundee City Council and VisitScotland to support the development of a tourism strategy for Dundee. Key to the growth of tourism in Dundee and the neighbouring region will be the development of a strong cultural tourism offer which draws on the design and creative strengths of the area, and both the tourism and creative industries sectors have a key role to play in that.” This cultural fund is a great scope for businesses for supporting development of new products and experiences in Dundee. It’s a collaborative fund and applications must be submitted by at least two partners, with one as the lead. Projects need to be new and delivered in Dundee to qualify for the funding and ideas must be aimed towards attracting visitors to the city. All applications must be submitted by 31st January.
