Conference Thank You

A big thank you ……..

to all of you who attended the conference and for participating in such a collaborative and positive manner. We did in fact have quite a number of people who turned up out of the blue without pre-registering and they were, of course, welcomed with open arms. We had a total of 156 people at the conference. We will be writing to you again shortly with a brief synopsis of the outcomes of the conference.

AB+ Cultural Conference for Aberdeen – coming soon…

Welcome to the AB+ (Positive). Here you will find all the information and news from the forthcoming AB+ conference which is taking place at the Aberdeen Arts Centre on the 26th of January 2012. You can also register your place on the conference and complete the on-line questionnaire.

This conference aims to build on the development of our cultural strategy, Vibrant Aberdeen by not only celebrating the cultural life of the city but also opening a dialogue on how this can be developed to play a more prominent role in the city’s future.  We want the conference to challenge our thinking, to create a platform for innovative ideas and ultimately identify what steps we need to take in order to achieve these ambitions.

The conference will be constructed of key-note speakers, workshops and a question and answer panel session. The content will focus on local cultural provision in the context of our existing strengths, our national and international linkages and those areas where we acknowledge that improvement is required. It will also look for inspiration from other cities throughout the world with the speakers drawing their own knowledge and experiences.

While leading cultural thinkers, economists and strategists will provide insight and challenge assumptions the ideas and the ambition must come from within our community … from you. This is your opportunity to shape the future of the city and help make Vibrant Aberdeen a reality.

We look forward to seeing you on the day.
