Our Staff

Paula Gibson, Artistic Director (until 31st August 2017)
Paula participated in theatre from an early age. Directing avant-garde plays as a founder member of the Ferryhill Players, she spent 25 years with the group until 2006, when she joined the Arts Centre as Executive Manager.  Since then she has been at the forefront of revitalising our cultural strategy. Aberdeen Arts Centre has grown to become one of the leading providers of cross-platform inclusive community arts activities in Aberdeen.

Currently developing a pro/am model of theatre making, with the sell-out success of Cabaret being the first, Paula was one of the originators of the partnership that produced Granite, and is actively creating a legacy of story-gathering, performance and song for Aberdeen. Paula is also an active member of the Scottish Community Drama Association.

Paula is very proud of the fact that the Arts Centre is able to support the immense, diverse talent existing in the area, and is looking forward to the many exciting developments lying ahead.
