We’re really keen to interrogate and explore what Artist Development could look like at Aberdeen Arts Centre.

How can we support artists, creatives, theatre makers, at all stages of their careers? This page will develop and grow in the coming months to show upcoming opportunities, workshops planned to help support specific areas of being a creative in Aberdeen and links to opportunities at other organisations in Aberdeen and beyond.

Please keep an eye on our website and social media for what’s coming up and please don’t hesitate to reach out if you’d like a chat info@aberdeenartscentre.com
