Thanks to presenters and attendees at Feb WWWW&W event

Here is a summation from the evening:

AB+’s February Networking and Information night featured Fiona Fernie of Grampian and Region Chamber of Commerce, and Lesley Thomson of Aberdeen City Council’s Cultural Policy and Development Team.

They shared an overview of the current as well as future economic, commercial and investment landscape for the city and surrounding region, and how recent and future developments such as the Regional Economic Strategy can contribute to the continued success of a growing cultural sector and atmosphere in the city. Discussion also on ACC’s recently commissioned ‘365 Events Strategy’ and ‘Cultural Strategy’ developed by Community Planning Aberdeen’s ‘Cultural Network’ which has membership composed of those most active in the city’s culture and creativity, and in consultation with other key stakeholders and the wider community. It was wonderful to see and to hear how much interest and enthusiasm there is within Aberdeen’s cultural, creative and artistic fields to explore the potential for collaborations and partnerships with other industries, sectors and even services toward ensuring the continued success and sustainability of each. As these strategies enter their final drafts and stages of development over the weeks and months we shall endeavour to share them with members to share your views and suggestions and as always, we look forward to welcoming you to the next AB+ evening.

Aberdeen Jazz Festival continues until Sunday 19th – check out the programme and bag a ticket to something cool…click here for further information..

Green Tease is an ongoing informal events programme which connects creative practices and environmental sustainability facilitated by Creative Carbon Scotland. Since 2013 Green Tease has offered a platform for those interested in building links between the arts and sustainability through the exchange of ideas, knowledge and practices.

The annual AGM will be held in April 2017 and we are looking for board members to replace some long standing members who will be stepping down this year. Come and discuss the future of the organisation.
