Plans revealed for Aberdeen's Nuart Festival

An Aberdeen street art festival has unveiled its programme. 

The schedule for Nuart Aberdeen has gone live online and reveals what will be going on in the inaugural bash. 

Murals and installations from UK and international artists will take over the Granite City during the three-day showcase, which starts on Friday, April 13.

Adrian Watson, chief executive of Aberdeen Inspired, said: “It is now nearly three weeks until Nuart and we are hugely excited to see the creative transformation of our city and the artworks that will be created. The artists taking part in Nuart are well-known globally and it is a privilege to host them in Aberdeen.

“This is a legacy project for us and we are very proud to be bringing it to the Granite City with the Nuart team.”

Events such as street art tours, presentations and the UK premiere of Saving Banksy will also be held.

Started in 2001, the event has been held in the Norwegian city of Stavanger ever since.
