NuArt organisers issue “call for walls” to Aberdeen businesses

Organisers behind an Aberdeen street art festival are calling on businesses to offer up their walls for next year’s showcase.
NuArt brings artists from all over the world to the Granite City to decorate unused space – winning multiple awards since its launch in 2016.
They’re now issuing a “call for walls” for next year’s artists – to join the likes of Union Plaza and Country Ways on Holburn Street.
NuArt will run in Aberdeen in April next year.
Adrian Watson, chief executive of Aberdeen Inspired, said: “Nuart Aberdeen has left an incredible legacy in our city already and we can’t wait to bring it back next year. It has changed the perceptions of both locals and visitors to Aberdeen and achieved worldwide acclaim. Above all else, it has captured the hearts of people.
“Each year we appeal to property owners to become a part of this artistic movement through putting forward potential walls for our acclaimed artists to make their own during the festival. This is a brilliant way to be a part of a truly transformative event, which we are very excited to be bringing back to Aberdeen.”
Craig Stevenson, Bon Accord Centre manager, said: “We were delighted with the opportunity to be part of the legacy that is the Nuart Aberdeen festival through the piece of art created by Bortusk Leer within the Rooftop Garden.
“It was a great use of an unused wall space and attracted thousands of people to this area through both the walking tours, and overall excitement surrounding the art. As part of this, we launched our popular Monster Hunt at the start of the summer, incorporating the design of the street art constructed by Leer. We would urge people to get involved in Nuart Aberdeen 2019 whether that is through putting forward a wall for consideration or coming along to enjoy the festival.”
To submit a wall, please send an email to [email protected] with the following information: a photo of the wall/s, address and approximate dimensions of the wall.
