DCA miss out on Art Fund Museum of the Year - but is recognised for its incredible impact on the city

In a remarkable acknowledgment of its 25-year contribution to the arts, Dundee Contemporary Arts (DCA) received significant recognition in this year's Art Fund Museum of the Year awards.

While the top honour went to Young V&A in London, the DCA's outstanding achievements were celebrated with a commendable £15,000 award.

The DCA, a beloved cultural hub in the heart of Dundee, has been instrumental in enriching the local community with its diverse array of exhibitions, educational programs, and creative initiatives.

Over the past quarter-century, the DCA has established itself as a cornerstone of the arts scene, fostering creativity and providing a space for both emerging and established artists to showcase their work.

Art Fund's recognition of the DCA underscores the institution's vital role in the cultural landscape. The £15,000 award will support the DCA's ongoing efforts to engage the community, promote artistic expression, and enhance its programming. This financial boost comes at a crucial time, ensuring that the DCA can continue to thrive and make a significant impact.

Local supporters and art enthusiasts have expressed immense pride in the DCA's accomplishments. The community's appreciation for the DCA is a testament to the institution's dedication to making Dundee a vibrant and dynamic place for the arts.

The DCA's unwavering commitment to excellence and innovation has earned it a special place in the hearts of many.

As the DCA celebrates this milestone and looks ahead to the future, the support and recognition it has received reaffirm its importance. The DCA's journey over the past 25 years has been marked by passion, perseverance, and a deep connection to the community. With continued support and funding, the DCA is poised to inspire and engage audiences for many more years to come.

While the top prize may have gone to the brilliant Young V&A, the DCA's contributions to the arts and its community have been rightfully honoured.

The £15,000 award from the Art Fund is a significant endorsement of the DCA's exceptional work and a promise of more exciting developments in the future.
