Creative Aberdeenshire
Garioch Heritage Centre

23rd September – 3rd October

Creative Aberdeenshire is the opportunity for you to take part in an exhibition to showcase the talent of local people. It will be held at the Garioch Heritage Centre 23rd September – 3rd October 2021.
This is not a competition but a way for folk from Aberdeenshire to create an exhibition for others to enjoy.
There may be the chance to donate the items exhibited (should you wish) into a silent auction to raise funds for Aberdeenshire Charities.

An exhibition to showcase the creative talents of the people of Aberdeenshire over the lockdown months will be held in the Garioch Heritage Centre opening on 23rd September until the 3rd October.

"Creative Aberdeenshire" is a combined initiative between the Aberdeenshire Lieutenancy and Garioch Heritage Centre and is designed to encourage and showcase in a unique exhibition the creative talents of people living throughout Aberdeenshire.

This exhibition by the people of Aberdeenshire, for the people of Aberdeenshire and hopefully from further afield was going to be held in April at the Garioch Heritage Centre, however this has now been moved to September.

Gillian Pettigrew at Garioch Heritage Centre said - “We have been delighted with the number of people who have already registered their interest to participate in the exhibition, by moving the exhibition date to the Autumn will allow others to contribute too. The variety of skills and crafts that people are engaged in is superb."

Sandy Manson, Lord-Lieutenant of Aberdeenshire said "Creative Aberdeenshire was designed to help give people a fun and creative project to undertake during the months in lockdown. It has been a very challenging time for everyone and we felt this project would help harness the wonderful range of creative talents we have throughout our communities.”

“We already know of a great variety of creations already being worked on including sewing, knitting, felting, glass work, wood turning, carpentry, and poetry. “

“I would encourage as many people as possible to register and submit their entry for what I believe will be a very special and inspirational exhibition in September.”
