“Curated Place are thrilled to be working with Aberdeen City Council again to deliver the third SPECTRA Festival this time taking the ambition of the event to new levels. Following the great success of the 2015 and 2016 festivals, we are working closely with local, national and international artists to expand over five sites in the city centre to explore how collaboration, installation and creative practice can redefine the experience of the city in the dark winter months. Together with the culture team at the City Council we are developing new opportunities for local artists to develop the skills and capacity to make lasting international connections while bringing stunning light and sound works to the city streets for all to enjoy.”
