Join Matt Baker, founder and board member of the Midsteeple Quarter project,
for a talk on this innovative community-led initiative to revitalise Dumfries High Street!
Midsteeple Quarter is a Community Benefit Society set up and run by the people of Dumfries. Their aim is to help shape a new future for our town centre; one that responds to the needs of our community and is run for their benefit. The core principle is that local people have the innovative solutions for our town and that a significant local stake in the future of the town through community ownership and control is the best route towards a sustainable prosperity that is shared fairly amongst everyone.
Midsteeple Quarter are delivering this vision by bringing 8 underused High Street properties under community control and refurbishing these as a contemporary living, working, socialising, learning and enterprising quarter – a new beating heart for a more diverse town centre and a catalyst for a thriving and resilient future Dumfries.
We recommend downloading Zoom before the start of the talk. Instructions on how to join will be sent by email 1 day before the event.BACK
