Thanks to an invitation from business organisation Aberdeen Inspired, Nuart Festival is currently in advanced discussions to bring the Festival to The Granite City in spring/summer 2017.  

Nuart visited Aberdeen in May 2016 to meet representatives from Aberdeen Inspired and other key stakeholders, i­ncluding The Lord Provost of Aberdeen, Visit Aberdeenshire Tourist Board and Aberdeen City Council as well as carrying out an extensive tour of the city centre to locate potential sites for artworks.

The idea for a north-east version for the festival came after Aberdeen Inspired experienced success with their own street art projects and contacted Nuart Festival as a result of the organisation’s international reputation for excellence and close ties between Aberdeen and Stavanger.

Aberdeen Inspired chief executive Gary Craig is excited at the prospect of bringing a dedicated street art festival to the city next year, and said: “We’re delighted to welcome the team from Nuart Festival to Aberdeen in what is  another positive step towards introducing something of this scale and depth to the city next year.

“We want to help people explore parts of the city that they wouldn’t necessarily visit on a daily basis. A festival of this sort would hopefully attract some of the world’s most exciting and thought-provoking artists to the city along with giving local artists a chance to showcase their work on a larger scale. We’re excited at the prospect of an event of this stature coming to Aberdeen.”

Martyn Reed, Director and Curator of the Nuart Festival, said: “We’re honoured to have been invited to discuss the idea of bringing Nuart to the city of Aberdeen. As a twinned city that is just a 1hr direct flight from Stavanger we see huge potential in the project and look forward to discussing this exciting opportunity further.”
