21 Years of The Town is the Venue

Sat 3 Dec, from 9am, Huntly

ARTocracy in the Making

Deveron Arts is coming of age! We will be celebrating our 21st Birthday, looking back and looking forward. Working in Huntly since 1995 through the town is the venue mantra, we have brought some 85 artists, musicians and writers together with our various communities to work on over 100 different projects. Huntly has been our research site, studio, gallery, stage and home over these years and, following an extensive reflection process, this occasion will allow us to take stock of the past whilst presenting our plans for the future.

The town is the venue day will start with the Farmers Market where Jacques Coetzer, the creator of our Room to Roam brand will be making banners for the town photo shoot.
Throughout the day, there will be talks, walks, food tastings, film screenings and other events to explore our town and past and present projects. Take a look at the schedule and join the celebration!
