Based on survey findings and ongoing discussions with the creative community of Aberdeenshire, Live Life Aberdeenshire seeks to increase the visibility and support the development of the creative sector by helping to develop a Creative Aberdeenshire Network.
Our creative communities have told us that they require opportunities to increase confidence, be part of a wider network of creative places and create an authentic Aberdeenshire cultural identity. In turn, these could lead to long-term, artist-led collaborations, creative community-ownership and a strong, diverse culture of creativity in the North East.
The findings identified four key ambitions:
In response, we have developed four new packages totaling £25,000 as a starting point to support and address these ambitions. This initiative is led by Live Life Aberdeenshire's Cultural Services and is part-funded through a Place Partnership with Creative Scotland
