The free street art walking tours have proved to be a huge hit with the people of Aberdeen and its many visitors. The tours take place every Saturday and leave at 1pm from the Green.
A huge part of street arts appeal is that anyone can stumble upon it and engage with it whether on the morning commute to work or exploring the city at the weekend. Thousands came out to see the works being painted and created but not everyone gets the story behind the pieces. Through the free walking tours we take you on an expert guided tour around the various pieces of street art and as a group we explore the city with fresh eyes. From the minature sculptures of Isaac Cordal to the gigantic mural of Ernest Zacharevic, we take in as much work as possible. Some people prefer to see the works on their own terms like the local running groups who’ve made a special effort to include some culture in their weekly fitness regimes. If you wish to be your own tour guide you can find a map for all the larger Nuart works here.
By making the tours free we hope to engage a wider audience and have also delivered a special Nuart Aberdeen presentation followed by a special tour for P7’s from Ashley Road Primary School and St Margarets School. The classes were inspired by the Nuart murals and Painted Doors Aberdeen with some students giving us facts about the artists they’d been researching for a class project. With talks lined up at Aberdeen Art Gallery, the city library and special tours for Aberdeen Drug Action & Aberdeens Womens Institute, Nuart aims to open the doors on street art to everyone!
