Friday’s second guest lecture comes from Kirsty Thomson of The Circle.

The Circle is a hub for charities, social enterprises, community groups and socially aware businesses in Dundee.

We provide affordable offices, co-working and community space.

By bringing organisations together, we are promoting collaboration and fostering innovation that does social good in the city.

Kirsty is our Founder and Chief Executive Office. Kirsty has worked with charities, social enterprises and organisations for 17 years. She is also Managing Director of Along Came Kirsty, a Third Sector consultancy that has been running for five years with four members of staff and hard-working volunteers. A graduate of the University of Abertay, she is a trustee of the Abertay Students Association.

Dundee Pecha Kucha night


The Pecha Kucha night is a must attend event in Dundee. Part of an international network of creative discussions and presentations, the event has been critical in helping to forge a vibrant creative community in the city. Over the last two years Design Enterprise students have been regular attenders – and indeed DJCAD graduates (and some staff) are amongst the presenters.

The next one will be held towards the end of February.

We strongly encourage you to be part of this. The event is initiated and organised by Creative Dundee. We suggest that you go to their website and subscribe to their email alerts. When the tickets go on sale, they sell out within hours.
