All Welcome Here

O Street, All Welcome Here, 2017

Design agency O Street have created a bold and colourful exhibition that incorporates badges people can wear or display to show a sign of openness to all, and celebrate diversity in Dundee and beyond. With the aim of creating a sign that works across language barriers and is simple to draw and understand, O Street settled on a design derived from a smile and two people joining hands.

The installation spells out ALL WELCOME HERE and includes 3000 removable pin badges. The installation is a vibrant, challenging message of inclusivity. But it’s also a question to ourselves and the city. Are we ALL really WELCOME HERE? Are there limits to our openness? What would a truly open city look like? Beyond the physical installation, O Street will be working with Making Dundee Home to generate conversation around the exhibition and gather thoughts about what values and behaviours the symbol represents. 

 The badges will be installed and available to the public from 3pm on the 10th April 2017.
