Bringing together leading international artists with established Scottish collaborators SPECTRA will deliver a four day light spectacular growing from its home in Union Terrace Gardens to the Kirk of St Nicholas graveyard and into the signature building of the Granite City Marischal College.
Featuring major public realm and gallery installations alongside new experimental works from the North East’s creative community the festival will enliven the city and celebrate Aberdeen’s creative past, present and future. Inviting audiences to engage with playful, accessible and high quality performances, spaces and works of art that marry light, sound and interactive experiences SPECTRA 2016 will be an exciting family event bringing light to the depths of winter.
Numerous opportunities to get involved are available all of which will give volunteers the chance to learn from one of the UK's most ambitious arts organisations and give you the chance to be part of delivering incredible artworks outside of gallery walls.
