Silver Stories launched

Silver Stories launched

Principal of The University of Aberdeen, Professor Sir Ian Diamond and Depute Leader of the Council, Marie Boulton formally launched the funding scheme in the Townhouse in Old Aberdeen at a ceremony yesterday evening.

The joint initiative, led by Aberdeen City Council, the University of Aberdeen and Visit Aberdeenshire comprises a fund of 110k that will be made available to groups who wish to create a series of events themed around Aberdeen’s history, heritage and archaeology.

The winning events will form part of the Silver Stories programme to be held in Aberdeen City in the summer of 2017. 

The programme will be created by inviting residents, artists, community groups, cultural organisations and other interested parties to develop and submit ideas, projects and activities which will showcase, celebrate and debate the history and heritage of Aberdeen.

Two of the main aims of Silver City Stories are to celebrate and reflect upon the history and heritage of Aberdeen and its people; and to generate new insights into, and reflections upon, the history and heritage of Aberdeen

Professor Sir Ian Diamond, Principal of the University of Aberdeen said:  “We are delighted to be part of this inspiring and enlightening initiative.  I look forward immensely to seeing a rich and original programme which will reflect the diversity and ingenuity of the City and its people.”

Anyone interested in becoming part of Silver City Stories will be asked to provide information on their proposed activity and a request for support. The overall budget for delivering Silver City Stories is £110,000. This is available to support the delivery of new activity and/or to enhance existing activity relating to the history and heritage of Aberdeen. It includes:
