Offset57 Build Up
The idea for Offset57 came about after hearing people within the creative community, especially students bemoaning the ‘there’s nothing goes on in Aberdeen’ – this is clearly untrue but there certainly wasn’t somewhere that they felt they could all get together and collaborate, trying out ideas – exploring the notion of selling work, and testing out processes. The space and shop allow them to do both. Meeting and chatting within the space and having the opportunity to talk to people from a wider area of the creative industry, while being supported in their aim to create work that is viable and allows some freedom, has proven popular. It has been great to see collectives and inspiration forming via individuals who might not have had the chance to meet otherwise.
