Dumfries: The Stove and Midsteeple Quarter

Share this Publication


Author: Carnegie UK Trust

Year: 2019

The Carnegie UK Trust has been supporting the Stove (an artist led community hub and Development Trust in Dumfries) to share their learning about community and town development.

At the Carnegie UK Trust, we believe towns are home to vibrant and innovative communities, and we are working to support towns and regional bodies to develop strategies to improve the wellbeing of their places. Discussions on towns too often focus merely on saving or preserving rather than progressing or rethinking. We believe that community and artist-led regeneration can offer imaginative solutions to the challenges facing our towns.

This case study is an expanded version of a chapter of the forthcoming Turnaround Towns UK report, which draws together nine stories of towns around the United Kingdom who are transforming their futures.
