Ladies Wine Design

Dr Stacey Hunter is a curator and producer working in design, craft and architecture. With over 15 years experience of creative production in the design and architecture sector in Scotland and abroad, her expertise lies in developing programmes to promote design locally and internationally through exhibitions, events, symposia and cultural projects. In 2007 she helped to programme and deliver The Six Cities Design Festival, a £3M nationwide festival of design in Scotland. Hunter’s doctoral thesis in architecture is the first major review of Scotland's emergent New Urbanism (University of Edinburgh, 2015). 

In 2015 she founded Local Heroes, a curatorial agency – based in Edinburgh – that connects audiences with exceptional Scottish design. Local Heroes puts design from Scotland on an international stage, presenting and promoting Scottish products and industries to the public. Through exhibitions and events the organisation provides unique opportunities for people to appreciate Scotland’s contemporary design landscape. Local Heroes is an ongoing cultural project promoting and supporting design culture in Scotland and abroad. In August 2016 Local Heroes presented a major exhibition of newly commissioned Scottish design souvenirs at Edinburgh Airport. A key part of Scotland’s Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design, Local Heroes presented contemporary design to a global audience spanning 120 different locations and three continents.
