Nuart Aberdeen (Street Art)
Nuart Aberdeen is the only street art festival in Scotland. Widely regarded as the best street art festival of its kind in the world.
Artists from around the globe transform the walls and buildings of Aberdeen city centre annually with works of art that are free for all to enjoy 365 days a year / 24 hours a day. Launched in 2017 this multi-award winning festival provides a platform for local, national and international artists to showcase their work and produce both large and small scale murals, sculptures and interventions with the support of local artists that resonate with the city, its surroundings and its history.
Originating in Norway in 2001, the team behind the annual Stavanger Nuart Festival worked in collaboration with Aberdeen Inspired and Aberdeen City Council to bring the public art event to Aberdeen.
Since its launch Nuart Aberdeen has brought tens of thousands of people into the city all year round to enjoy the works of art for free. It has been truly transformational for Aberdeen and the city centre is a perfect stage for this now annual festival which has genuinely revolutionised the city centre.
