June 2 2008
Peacock Visual Arts have revealed details of a new centre for the contemporary arts to be built in Aberdeen's Union Terrace Gardens
The development is intended to become a creative powerhouse for the North-east, promoting dance, the visual arts, new media and education, and is set to be home to "the very best in contemporary arts practice".
"The beautiful, iconic building will house state-of-the-art gallery spaces as well as multi-purpose areas for film screenings, music performances and large scale installations. The centre’s artistic programme will attract some of the world’s most exciting artists, and develop a truly global network out of its Aberdeen base. Meanwhile, core partnerships with Education and Arts Development will ensure that the rich, varied programme reaches people of all ages and backgrounds, building creative communities and combating social exclusion," Peacock said in a statement.
