We are a membership organisation and work with Dumfries and Galloway's creative and cultural sector, advocating, supporting and giving creatives a collective voice.
We are delighted to be working in partnership with Dumfries and Galloway Council to support the creative sector with a variety of networking events, creative professional development, and funding opportunities.
We're commited to leading by example and to encouraging and supporting genuine inclusivity, diversity, and care for our planet within our region's creative sector.
We are champions and advocates of the vital role creative practitioners and community organisations play in our region and in the world. And the vital contribution they make to the vibrancy, beauty, and wellbeing of our communities and the health of our economy.

Welcome to the Autumn edition where we FOCUS upon people.
This issue features a whole host of creatives from around the region, working in
different areas, mediums, and practices. It’s been a joy to spend time speaking to these wonderful creatives, to visit their places of work, and to see the fruits of their labour.
On one of the warmest and sunniest days this year I had the pleasure of visiting Gracefield Arts Centre where I spoke to Dawn Henderby who generously shared her passion for contemporary art and told us about her role. And I met Simon Hart, the recently appointed CEO of D&G Arts Festival. Nic Coombey has been doing creative things with plastic. We also feature Hope London and have a glimpse in to her world of art music and activism. We meet emerging visual artist, Rhiannon Mudaliar who grew up in Sanquhar and now splits her time between D&G and Dundee. Hagen Patterson gives us a glimpse of region’s vibrant music scene in D&G and shares his passion for music, and his work for DMC. And there’s more!
Grab a cuppa and dive in to meet the wonderful creative people who are members of DG Unlimited. We hope their stories and creativity inspire you and give you a glimpse into the wonderful things happening in this region.

There is a Place is a piece of art in its own right.
DG Unlimited commissioned Creative Producer, Tabitha Mudaliar, and Filmmaker James Alcock to create a 6-minute film which would capture the extraordinary creative talent being demonstrated in Dumfries and Galloway.
Emerging poet, Celia Donovan narrates the film with an eery performance of her poem, commissioned for the film. Ralph Kinsella’s original scored ads atmosphere and an evocative soundtrack. The creativity, words, and music are expertly brought together through James' beautiful and perceptive cinematography.
