This event is jointly organised with Nairn Book and Arts Festival and must be booked through them.
Philip Long is Director of the V&A Museum of Design, Dundee, set to open in 2018. As Director, he is responsible for the delivery of the first ever design museum in the UK outside London and proud to be playing such a significant part in the renaissance of Dundee.
Philip is an Honorary Professor of the University of Dundee and was previously Senior Curator at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art. He will give his vision for the new museum, revealing how it will help all understand Scotland's extraordinary design heritage and why design plays such an important part in all our lives. He will also make mention of how the V&A's collections have benefited greatly from the generosity of the Art Fund.
This event has been organised by the Highlands Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
