SPECTRA: Aberdeen Festival of Light


6 – 9 February 2014

6 – 10pm

In just over three weeks, Aberdeen city centre will be dazzled by a spectacular array of light installations, exhibitions and events for all of the family to enjoy.

Reclaim The Night promenade, led by Aberdeen City Council’s Creative Learning Team, will bring a touch of technicolour to the City’s backstreets and alleyways and The Light Garden will see a thousand sparkling flowers planted in Union Terrace Gardens.

Peacock Visual Arts will also present new interior light works by one of the festival artists, Adam Barker-Mill, in ‘just-noticeable differences Part 2’, 7 February – 22 March 2014. The exhibition will open on Thursday 6 Feb, 6 – 9pm, with the gallery remaining open to the public until 10pm for the duration of the festival, reverting to usual opening hours thereafter.

SPECTRA: Aberdeen Festival of Light is an Aberdeen City Council Encounters commission delivered by Peacock Visual Arts, supported by Aberdeen Inspired and Creative Scotland.
