Deveron Projects is based in the rural market town of Huntly, Scotland. We connect artists, communities and places through creative, critical work. The town is the venue describes the framework in which we work. We are committed to the social wellbeing of our town and inhabit, explore, map and activate the place through artist driven projects. Huntly's small town context, 18th Century streets and surrounding Aberdeenshire countryside offers an abundance of possibilities to work with. Since 1995 we have engaged with local communities and their clubs, choirs, shops, schools, churches, bars and discos.
Deveron Projects draws inspiration from Sir Patrick Geddes, the Aberdeenshire-born “father of town planning” who viewed society as a bio-diverse interconnected system. By adopting his polymathic approach we respond to the many interests and needs of all age groups, subcultures and demographics in our community. We have adopted a worldview that whatever happens on a small scale is always connected to a larger reality. Working in our hometown with artists from around the world connects our local communities with the international sphere.
