Look Again Visual Arts Festival 8-12 April
Look Again is a new visual art & design festival for the North East of Scotland. Building on the highly successful RGU ‘LOOK’ festival, Look Again is a five-day celebration of visual art & design, of culture and creativity and a programme of creative events to engage the wider community of Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire. Brought together by Smart Consultants and Robert Gordon University.
A centrepiece to the first year’s festival features a major commission, the Look at Me Sculpture Trail which is based on the theme of exposing and connecting. It is a major component of the festival and will see six of the city’s 19th century statues being re-dressed with temporary pieces of public art by several different local, national & internationally acclaimed artists
With various exhibitions, projects and events across the city and with a jam-packed programme over the 4 days there is something for everyone.
For more information and to look at the programme please see.
A reminder about Made in Aberdeen Artist Bursaries
Aberdeen City Council is committed to supporting the development of arts and culture in the city. The concept of ‘Made in Aberdeen’ is tied to the recognition that the city is home to a wealth of creative and artistic talent but that both the support and profile of this needs developed. The ‘Made in Aberdeen’ initiative aim to both increase the support for, and profile of, this talent; It is about having confidence in the city’s creative individuals, about nurturing and supporting our talent and finding new ways of showcasing it to a much wider local, national and international audience.
Made in Aberdeen includes the following support initiatives:
- Artists’ Bursaries
- Artists’ Commissions
- Emerging Talent Prize
- Made In Aberdeen Films
Five awards of up to £2,000 available to artists working in any art form, to support create, develop and/or present new work, participate in development opportunities such as residencies or training courses, facilitate new collaborations to support artistic development and experimentation.
