Check out Reformation Project 28th and 29th September
RE-FORMATION is a community art project celebrating and promoting young people’s ideas, skills and achievements as part of Scottish Government’s Year of Young People 2018. It is a large-scale city wide partnership project, co-designed and delivered by young people from school and community groups.
The project plans to transform the pedestrian area of Reform Street, covering the cobbles with inspirational words and images to create a vibrant and uplifting atmosphere for the wider community. 10 community groups will create individual designs that will collectively carpet the street.
The art installation is an ambitious and exciting display, demonstrating young people’s perspective of youth culture. The artwork will include themes such as equality, diversity, ambition, inclusion and will explore stereotypes and mental health.
The project will culminate in a live event on Saturday 29th September and Sunday 30th September where participating groups will be invited to transfer their designs onto the street as a temporary art installation.
We are seeking funding to support groups from across the city to participate in this exciting event. If you can sponsor RE-FORMATION in any way please contact 01382 206060 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Still being volunteer friendly
The Corner is delighted to have been successful in gaining the Volunteer Friendly award for another three years. This award is greatly appreciated and will help to ensure that the Corner continues to meet the requirements to best provide current and future volunteers with relevant, appropriate opportunities, support and guidance.
Volunteers and staff recently attended a civic award ceremony held by the Volunteer centre Dundee and presented by the Depute Lord Provost at the City Chambers. The ceremony recognised and celebrated services regaining the awards, as well as services gaining the award for the first time. In the picture Cameron Price, volunteer arts worker was presented with the Volunteer friendly award on behalf of the Corner.

Launch of Brain Injury Resources
As part of Brain Awareness Week our newly developed "Keeping (a)head film" and "Puzzled about the brain" resources were launched on Tuesday 7th March at The Shore.
These resources have been developed at The Corner with young people in partnership with NHS Tayside's Centre for Brain Injury Rehabilitation, supported by Dundee City Council's Youth Work Department.
Both the film and jigsaw are aimed at raising young people’s awareness of potential head injuries through sport and other lifestyle risk taking behaviours. These resources will be used initially in Schools.
Rock your Rights!
Our spring campaign at The Corner focused on Rights. We promoted young people’s rights and shared information about the legal age that young people have different rights. Check out our leaflet.

Eat, Sleep, Care, Repeat
The Corner went all 80's in the months of August and September for the 'Eat, Sleep, Care, Repeat' campaign. With its bright neon colour the campaign was all about positivity - how to be 'happy' through self care, healthy eating and sleeping well, and how to care for others through random acts of kindness.

Know your LGBTs...
'Know your LGBTs...' was a health campaign designed by young LGBT people at The Corner and Allsorts youth group in Dundee. The young people wished to highlight that not every person falls into LGBT stereotypes. They wanted to show that gender and sexual identity are not fixed; not everyone fits into one box.
