CONFERENCE DAY 1

 

ART & EVERYDAY LIFE:  HISTORY, HERITAGE & ARCHAEOLOGY

 

14:00–17:00

Belmont Filmhouse

49 Belmont Street , AB10 1JS

 

Nuart Festival is based on the principle that art should be part of people’s everyday lives. Our events provide a platform to amplify artists’ voices whose goal is to offer an alternative and more practical way of engaging with visual art than art institutions can currently offer. Nuart are dedicated to creating new dialogues and narratives between artist and audience in public space, where people can engage freely and on their own terms.

 

In order for this to happen we need places and spaces where new kinds of stories and art forms can emerge. In this context, Graffiti and Street Art – so often portrayed as the seeds of destruction – can be embraced as the creative source of new beginnings.
