Over the last few months, people from our Aberdeen and Ellon services have been exploring indoor and outdoor spaces around Aberdeen to find inspiration for an urban mapping art project.

The artists taking part in the project have been discovering interesting places and exhibits in the city, then using the experiences to inspire artwork developed back at the studio.

Final exhibition

Everyone involved is enjoying developing and seeing the project progress, working towards the final stages of creating and exhibiting the resulting artworks.

The results will be showcased at an event in the Cruickshank Botanic Gardens later this summer.
