A bit more about us:
Culture Aberdeen is the working title for the process of co-producing a Culture Plan for Aberdeen.
Snook, in collaboration with the City’s Culture Network, are working closely together with individuals from arts and culture organisations and citizens to look at the city’s cultural offering.
The process is running until March 2016 and this is the first of the project’s events.
The event aims to build a picture of culture in Aberdeen.
