Open/close is a series of street art trails of painted doors around Dundee. Created by local artists, brightening up the streets of Dundee.

Open/Close Dundee was created out of an idea around a lunch table. To bring great street art to Dundee in a way that brightens up the unexplored nooks and crannies of the city. We now have 2 trails comprising of 38 individual pieces, with new street art and legal graffiti walls springing up all the time.

The original trail was created in Dundee's city centre to get people exploring off the beaten track. You'll go down hidden lanes and alleyways to find the 18 doors created by a mixture of local national and international artists.

We're now running tours of both of our trails taking in all the artworks and giving you all the information behind the creation of the tour and the history of the area. They last around 1-1.5 hours and are on a "pay what you think it's worth" basis. If you'd like a place on the next tour just drop us an email. 

City centre tours run on the first Saturday of each month meeting at 10 at the Penguin Parade  (outside St. Mary's Church).

Stobswell tours are happening every Saturday in May and then the first Saturday of the month thereafter meeting at 12.30 at Tayview Community Garden.
