New Dundonald Street mural unveiled by Hillcrest Foundation.

The Net Zero Club News Network is thrilled to share the exciting news of the newly unveiled mural at Dundonald Street, which was recently featured on STV news. This project, aimed at making environmental improvements in the local area, was generously funded by the Hillcrest Foundation.

Over the course of the past two years, young individuals from the Arthurstone Art Group actively contributed to the design, community consultation, and painting of the nature mural on Dundonald Street. This collaborative effort was made possible through the partnership between Stobswell Forum, The council’s Community Learning and Development Central Youth Team, and local street artist Symon Mathieson, also known as Syke.

Depute convener of children, families, and communities, Roisin Smith, expressed her admiration for the dedication and talent displayed by the local young people involved in the project. She highlighted that their artwork not only showcases environmental awareness but also serves as a testament to their commitment to enhancing the community.

Chair of the Hillcrest Foundation, Mark Percival, shared his delight in funding the second section of the mural, completing the full art-piece on Dundee’s Dundonald Street. He praised the young participants for their outstanding contribution to the vibrant street art scene in the Stobswell area, emphasising the long-lasting impact their work will have on the community.

Percival further reiterated the foundation’s commitment to making a positive difference in the community, noting that the mural not only serves as a valuable asset to the local area but also provides the young artists with essential skills for their future endeavours.
