The Lost Property Office

August 28 @ 10:00 am - August 29 @ 5:30 pm


“Hidden down one of Dumfries’ ancient alleyways there is a place where everything that’s been lost throughout time has been found. Items have been tagged, categorised and filed in the hope that one day someone will come and claim them. Have you lost something?”

Taking visitors on an immersive journey of discovery, The Lost Property Office is a live art installation located in the heart of Dumfries taking place over the last weekend in August.

The Lost Property Office, created by a collective of six artists, will see an array of suitcases, parcels, boxes and strange and intriguing lost objects installed in a secret place, in the heart of Dumfries. Each visitor will be given a special map to locate the office, once inside they will be invited to open and explore a lost item. What will be found? Forgotten dreams, journey’s never made, untold stories, curious personal collections and perhaps unexpected possibilities for finding joy, hope, beauty and the potential for change.

Dates: Sat 28th August and Sunday 29th August (10am to 5.30pm – timed slots of 30 minutes duration)
Location: Dumfries town centre. Directions to the venue will be made available after booking
