Supporting Creativity, Joy and Inspiration

V&A Dundee Patrons champion our award winning Learning programme, helping all our audiences discover and connect with the museum through a dynamic and fun participatory program which strives to build an inclusive community of users.

We work to enhance and improve the overall health and wellbeing of our communities, extending the reach and impact of the museum through meaningful engagement.
