The Masterplan will help ensure the city centre is “event-ready” by delivering new performance space and supporting the programming itself. Music, art, street theatre, dance, sport, walking tours — all could be part of Aberdeen 365.
In April 2017 Aberdeen hosted NuArt, an arts festival supported by the Masterplan and organised by Aberdeen Inspired, which saw buildings become canvasses for murals.
That was followed by the Cycling Tour Series in May.
Together with Great Run Company, Aberdeen Inspired, Aberdeen and Grampian Chamber of Commerce, and VisitAberdeenshire, the Masterplan delivered the first Great Aberdeen Run on August 27, 2017, attracting 8,000 participants.
In 2018, Nuart will return on April 12-15, the Tour Series on May 17, and the Great Aberdeen Run on August 26.
