A series of artworks have been installed in Dundee’s Slessor Gardens as part of Black History Month.
The posters – designed by two different artists – decorate the popular walkway down to the waterfront.
Claire Yspol has produced 30 different posters, which she has named A Lyrical Bibliography. They showcase essays, poems and other artworks from black artists, writers, thinkers and designers she admires.
The works form their own poetic text and can be used as a resource to find out more about the creators highlighted.
On the other side of the walkway, Scotland’s connection with Ghana is being shown through a series of works by Senanu Tordzro.
Her trail, named the Adinkra Way, features communication symbols from Ghana decorated with Ghanaian textiles.
The messages of love, hope and courage all have a relevance and meaning in Scotland as well as the African country.
Ms Tordzro said: “I’m really interested in the past and how my culture has been so deeply integrated in Scottish culture.
“I really wanted to represent that and to show people that somewhere as far away as Africa isn’t as far as we think. It’s right here in Scotland in people’s homes if we just search for it.”
Councillor Georgia Cruickshank, who chairs the cross-party City of Dundee and Black History Working Group, said: “We were delighted to be able to provide such a high-profile site that gets a lot of people walking past it to highlight the creative talents of two black female artists.
“As well as being beautiful and thought-provoking, they act as a good way of starting conversations that think about how we can address some of the major issues of our time around race.”
