Our partnership with the Maggie’s Centre in Dundee sees us bringing the Antarctic invaders to the city in a free public art event during summer 2018.
Taking place in this UNESCO City of Design in a year when the V&A Dundee opens, Maggie’s Penguin Parade provides free days out for children and families, helps create special moments and memories that will last a lifetime, encourages healthy lifestyles and puts local companies’ brands alongside Maggie’s at the centre of the design regeneration in Dundee.

Designed by artist and Senior Lecturer at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art Janice Aitken, the sculptures are a visual reminder of the important work done by Maggie’s in Dundee, based in the Frank Gehry-designed cancer care centre in the grounds of Ninewells Hospital. Maggie’s eight Scottish multi-award winning, architect-designed Centres have been providing free practical and emotional support for people undergoing cancer treatment, and their loved ones, for almost 21 years.
