Tabitha Mudaliar

DGU Director

I am a Writer, Broadcast Journalist, and Film Producer of art, feature, and documentary film. I’m the Network Coordinator for the DG Creative Wellbeing Network in Dumfries and Galloway and I am a Trustee of Alchemy Film & Arts in the Scottish Borders.

I’m passionate about widening access to the arts for all, especially for underrepresented people. Not only members of ethnic minority and LGBTQ+ communities, but those who are economically, geographically, and socially excluded. It is extremely important to me that my work, and in turn the work of DG Unlimited, helps break down the barriers preventing people from experiencing and participating in arts and culture. I’m proud to be leading DG Unlimited into the next phase of its work supporting and advocating for the creative sector in our region and in Scotland.

Lauren McDougall

Digital Communications Officer

I am a contemporary visual artist born in Dumfries, currently based in Glasgow. My work lies within feminist frameworks, as I use collage and video art as tools to examine and analyse relationships women obtain with themselves, non-human nature and social institutions. I relocated back to Dumfries & Galloway after graduating in BA (hons) Photography from University of the Arts London in 2021. 

As a Digital Communications Officer for DG Unlimited, I strive to engage with and empower young artists in Dumfries and Galloway. From starting as a Digital and Social Media Intern to becoming a Youth Arts Advocate, I am dedicated to building a thriving creative community for emerging talents in the region.

David Wright

Financial Administration Officer

My previous career was based mostly in London and Bristol  in Supply Chain Management and  the safe movement of high security goods for the MoD and the MoJ. Back in the early noughties I moved back home to Dumfries and Galloway to have a quieter life and live rurally.

I’m now semi-retired and enjoying using my financial skills to support arts organisations in the region. I live in the glorious Southern Uplands, where I walk and cycle every day.

I’m proud to be part of the DG Unlimited team, and to be serving the creative sector in our beautiful region. We have so much creativity around us and within our communities – we need to keep supporting it.
