This April, after 15 years of continuous and successful festivals in their hometown of Stavanger, Nuart Festival will be hosting their first edition outside Norway. Coming to UK for the first time, they recently announced Nuart Aberdeen that will take place from Friday 14 – Sunday 16 April.

Staying true to their tested and proven concept, the project will include a series of site-specific murals, installations, interventions, and temporary exhibitions, along with a program of talks, presentations, film screenings, walking tours and workshops. Always focused on redefining the public space, bringing art to uncommon places and triggering critical and creative thinking with the general population, this initiative was recognized by the Aberdeen Inspired and Aberdeen City Council who were looking for a special way to mark Aberdeen’s year of ‘History, Heritage and Archaeology’. With this in mind the festival seeks to reveal how street art can create an environment for a more imaginative use of public space, encourage community engagement, make art accessible to all, and create talking points in the city, as well as brightening up neglected spaces in the city center.

The organizers recently announced the lineup which includes 11 international artists, mostly Nuart’s long time friends and collaborators – Robert Montgomery, Fintan Magee, Herakut, Add Fuel, Isaac Cordal, M-city, Jaune, Martin Whatson, Julian de Casabianca, Nipper and Alice Pasquini.
