Aberdeen Events


Aberdeen Events is your first stop to discover the latest happenings in town. We love epic cultural events but we give equal attention to the culture growing within the city. Aberdeen bands, Aberdeen artists, Aberdeen creative businesses, and Aberdeen community events. The events that maybe some local press are less interested in.

 

The calendar is updated regularly, so you can stay in the loop on Aberdeen Events and plan your days and nights out. Whether you’re looking for family-friendly activities or a night out with friends, there’s something cool here for everyone.

Fittie Past, Present & Possibility

22 April 2023 @ 10:00 am 23 April 2023 @ 3:00 pm


Free

The Fittie Past, Present and Possibility exhibition explores Fittie’s relationship with the sea and its history. It also looks at Fittie’s history as an embarkation point for emigrating Scots. It shares experiences of arrival from some of Aberdeen’s migrant population and the role of community halls in access to, and participation in, the cultural life of a city.

A collaboration between Open Road and the Fittie Community Development Trust, Safe Harbour Open Sea initiated events, creative projects and podcasts that celebrate Fittie’s rich history and heritage – a unique sea-facing community nestled against a global oil port.

As well as casting an eye to the future of Fittie as a coastal community, Fittie Past, Present and Possibility explores ways to be good ancestors as Aberdeen, Scotland and the world prepare for a net zero carbon emissions future by 2045.

About POST

Kevin Mitchell and Chris Sansbury founded POST. This was from a desire to cut through the noise to share the great things that happen in Aberdeen. They focus on community, culture and also the interesting people of the city. The local artists, businesses and charities; photographers, musicians and entertainers. These are the people that make a positive impact on our city every day. So they use video, audio, writing and social media to amplify the voices in our community. And to ultimately give a platform to Aberdeen folk to engage and tell their own stories.

Recent work includes coverage of Spectra 2023, interviews with We Are Here Scotland founder Ica Headlam; Paralympic gold medalist, Neil Fachie; Aberdeen rapper Chef and his push for success; an article about the pedestrianisation of Union Street; coverage of Nuart Aberdeen and TEDx Aberdeen, as well as coverage of the campaign to Save the Belmont.

We are independent and entirely self funded. We just about cover our costs, but if you would like to help support our work, you could buy us a coffee.

Every one of us has the power, to plant an idea, a tree, a flower
