Dan Faichney

Dan, a Creative Events Assistant with Weave, is a musician, writer and performer, based in Dundee since 2005. Passionate about collaboration, DIY music culture and the intersections of creative communities, Dan has been working in festival and events organisation professionally and otherwise since graduating from university in 2009.

With experience in exhibitions and theatre tech complementing his background in events, Dan is keen to put his skills to good use in supporting a healthy, growing and inclusive arts scene in Dundee.

Susie Buchan

Susie, also a Creative Events Assistant, is an artist and performer who graduated from the University of Dundee in 2017. During her time at university she helped to organise a number of exhibitions and performance events, both in Dundee and while studying abroad in Budapest. Since graduating she has worked at a variety of arts festivals across Scotland before joining the team at Weave.

Although not a native Dundonian, Susie fell in love with the city over the last 4 years and is now very happy to call it home. She is extremely excited about contributing to Dundee’s ever-growing creative scene and having the opportunity to collaborate with a diverse range of artistic practitioners.

Her personal art practice is mostly video and performance based in which she creates outlandish characters, ranging from green aliens to candy-floss monsters, that comment on socio-political issues facing us today.
