Who are we

ScrapAntics is a creative recycling social justice enterprise who run Dundee’s only ScrapStore.

 

Whilst here for everyone, we prioritise working with local people who are marginalised, seeking to bring the joy and positive impact of imagination, creativity and Play to the whole community.

 

We are a diverse team of artists, creatives, volunteers, teachers, community workers, play workers and youth workers – all guided by our passion for social justice. Sustainability and equality are at the heart of everything we do – supporting the needs of our community, ensuring all voices are heard and putting people before profit.

We believe that creativity is core to rethinking our approach to living in and learning about the world…

EDUCATION

We provide annual contracts for resources, teacher training and school Play sessions – offering pupils opportunities for valuable learning, growth and self-development through Play. Our sessions encourage positive social interaction, problem solving, transferable skills and help to find solutions to social, emotional and behavioural challenges, in turn supporting improved educational outcomes.

Recycling

ScrapAntics have now diverted over 75 tonnes of business excess waste back into the community as resources for creative and play-based projects. All of our workshops, projects and events use recycled and donated materials, driving forward Dundee’s circular economy and looking to create a more sustainable future.

Community

We offer free Play sessions in parks across the city, lead on large scale community projects involving local schools and organisations and support a number of volunteers – addressing the rising social isolation issues and mental health challenges faced by our community. We work closely with the New Scot (refugee) community in Dundee, aiding their integration and socialisation through a number of different projects.

ART

With our 8 affordable artists studios, exciting menu of creative workshops and growing number of creative community projects, we believe passionately in the inherent creativity in each and every person. From mosaic, puppetry and mural painting to weaving, garment making and sculpture – ScrapAntics seeks to bring opportunities to everyone to enjoy and engage with art.

RecycleReuseCREATE

Our Scrapstore lies at the heart of ScrapAntics – it’s our first point of contact with the public. Run with the help of our volunteers, this is where our wonderful range of recycled resources are sorted, displayed and sold. Here you can find a constantly evolving stock of materials ranging from wood and hand tools to paper, fabric, yarn, card and stationery. You’re also bound to find some unusual and fascinating oddities!

 

At the Scrapstore we aim to celebrate and promote anything that is happening locally. If you speak to our staff, you will be able to find out about the projects and opportunities in which you can participate. Our store is an invaluable resource for artists, crafters, students, schools, theatres, parents with young children, DIY fanatics – anyone with an interest in creating something while recycling at the same time!
