We need your help to realise our vision

Your support matters. Your support…

Builds: V&A Museum of Design Dundee will be the first institution bearing the name V&A in the world outside London. The first design museum in the UK outside London. The first British building to be designed by world-renowned architect Kengo Kuma. Your support will provide funding to build this unique museum, a new attraction for all of Scotland.

Transforms: V&A Dundee is the flagship of the city’s £1bn waterfront redevelopment. It will be a substantial driver of job creation and economic development across Scotland, particularly in tourism and the creative industries. It will lead to increased inward investment and inspire pride and excitement in those who live, work in and visit the city.

Inspires: V&A Dundee will be a place for all, a ‘living room for the city’. We will create opportunities for everyone to engage with, learn from and enjoy design of the past, present and future. Your support will enable us to provide a full programme of learning activities, both in the museum and through outreach across Scotland. We will inspire creativity in children, working with schools from nursery to secondary. We will work with communities, youth groups, adult learning, like-minded charities and the business community to inspire everyone through design and demonstrate how it can change lives.

Nurtures and promotes: We will provide a new platform for celebrating, nurturing and promoting design talent. With your support we will connect with our art schools, colleges and universities. We will inspire and showcase creativity in our graduates, communities, creative industries and businesses, helping them launch their design expertise on the world stage.

Tells our story: V&A Dundee will be the first museum dedicated to telling the story of Scotland's extraordinary contribution to design on the global stage. Your support will help showcase our rich design heritage and culture through world-class exhibitions and programmes for children, adults, tourists and families. Your support will enable us to create the Scottish Design Galleries, bringing together, for the first time, objects from the V&A's collections with those from Scotland's dispersed collections of national significance.

This is a once in a century opportunity for Dundee, the wider region, and for Scotland. Please contact the campaign team to discuss how your support will make the difference.
