European Capital of Culture Connections
Tuesday 11 July
How can business play a part in Dundee's European Capital of Culture Bid for 2023?
One very simple and key way is to demonstrate the breadth of European connections that we have as a City.
Dundee & Angus businesses connect & trade all over the world, and we know you will know people in all corners of Europe.
So take the opportunity to get some profile for you & your business as a supporter of the bid, and show off your European connections!
See below for what you need to do...let's get involved!

Message from the Editor of the Courier
Dundee is bidding to become the European Capital of Culture in 2023 and we need your help to give the bid a massive boost ahead of the deadline for submissions.
To mark 100 days to go until the bid is submitted, The Courier will be running a huge vox-pop on July 19/20 asking more than 500 local people from all walks of life about what Europe means to them. We hope to unearth cultural, political and work connections as well as personal and family connections.
It could be anything from where people have visited to strong links between businesses, academia and official city relationships.
We plan to run pictures and comments across the top and bottom of every single page of The Courier on July 19/20. The submissions would then be transferred to the Dundee European Capital of Culture bid website at www.dundee2023.eu when it goes live later this year.
We would be very grateful if you could take part in this celebration of Dundee’s European connections.
All we need you to send is:
· A single sentence on what connections you have to Europe
· A head and shoulders picture
· Your name and position as you would like it to appear in The Courier and on www.dundee2023.eu
All we ask is that you send this as soon as you can to firstname.lastname@example.org . Our deadline is July 14 but we would really appreciate it if you could send your submission as soon as possible.
This will be the biggest vox-pop The Courier has ever attempted and possibly the largest ever carried by a Scottish newspaper. It would be a fantastic way to kick the bid off and show the strength of support it has from across the city.
We look forward to reading your submissions.
