Invitation to AB+ Cultural Conversation 4 November
October 16, 2013
Know Your Place, Monday 4 November, 7pm
AB+ is delighted to invite you to attend the first in a series of ‘Cultural Conversations’ to stimulate debate and discussion around some of the key issues affecting culture in the Aberdeen area.
This ‘Question Time’ style event will be held at Queens Cross Church, Aberdeen on Monday 4 November and chaired by Jane Spiers, Chief Executive of Aberdeen Performing Arts. The panel has been chosen to reflect the diverse nature of the organisations and industries that must work together in order to create a better ‘place’ for Aberdeen and its citizens and includes; Lorraine Grant, Aberdeenshire place-making lead and Barney Crockett, Labour Leader.
‘Know your Place’ will be a wide ranging debate pinned to the topic of ‘Place-making’. It’s about encouraging debate around the city’s current cultural vision and looking at what can be done to increase and intensify Aberdeen’s cultural output and appeal. It’s also about looking at how other cities have addressed cultural perceptions and to find out what’s unique about Aberdeen as a ‘Place’ and how that can be applied to future policy and activity.
We hope you can join in the debate – please submit questions for the panel in advance and join in discussion on the night. Alternatively, if you are unable to attend we are happy to table a question on your behalf and report back.
Please RSVP to email@example.com by Monday 28 October at 5pm.
Stewart Aitken, Chair, AB+
