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.
