The key aim of this project and its design is to promote the benefits of inclusion - intergenerational interaction; social activity and meaningful participation through the creative arts, including the many therapeutic and cognitive benefits this brings. There are references to our City of Dundee in the design by the use of print work used to create each individual patch. The sewing together of the patches in Oor Wullie's dungarees signifies each individual contribution being of value and coming together to create a whole. As one we stand strong, yet together we stand stronger.
