Despite the disappointing decision, Dundee will continue to succeed culturally because of the many highly-regarded talents in the city who are working together to build its future on imaginative cultural ideas.

This work will benefit the city socially, culturally and economically because the arts have a huge potential for drawing audiences and investment to cities.

A thriving cultural sector attracts businesses seeking a good quality of life for its employees.

Dundee's participation in the UK City of Culture contest will enhance the city's status as a venue for major events.

Good Luck to Hull.
