Arts & Climate Change Mini-Festival – Aberdeen

Arts & Climate Change Mini-Festival - Aberdeen

You’re invited to a day of free art, music and theatre workshops for adults (16+), creatively exploring what climate change means for local communities in Middlefield, Cummings Park, Marchburn and Heathryfold, in Aberdeen.

Workshops will be run throughout the day by four exciting artists from across Scotland, exploring in new and unexpected ways, how climate change will impact on Aberdeen’s communities.

Free lunch and refreshments will be available to you from the Middlefield Hub Café, and support to cover local travel expenses can also be provided if you require it.

Through the workshops, your views and experiences will be captured and fed into Aberdeen City Council’s climate change strategy which will set forth the city’s plan to adapt to the impacts of climate change in the years to come.

You’re welcome to bring your children along, we’ll have play areas and space for pushchairs and buggies.
