AB+ Seasonal Update, 2018



AB+ Tell Us Your Stories

Stories – First Round, Requested By: Saturday, 31st March

All responses, questions and ideas to:

AB+ will be raising awareness and showcasing examples of personal experiences of those who live in or have taken part in creative activities in Aberdeen.

Based on some of the conversations we have had with members and with those in the city’s communities, this could be anything from… a drama workshop, a painting class at the local community centre, a writing group, taking part in a photography contest and more.

Anything and everything that you, a member of a group, a friend, family member or anyone that you know of has had the chance to take part in – let us know!

The chance to express and create is always something worth celebrating.

This gives us the chance to highlight those positive experiences – but also to consider what challenges and barriers are still in place, when and where they are.

The success of this depends on you – our members telling us about them, and together we can achieve something meaningful for all.

Let us know, Tell Us Your Story.
