A street art project for the young at heART! comes to Aberdeen! This years Nuart Aberdeen festival will see a collaboration with Portuguese curator Lara Seixo Rodrigues to present a series of workshops aimed at the over 65’s. Lara is the founder of the world renowned LATA65 street art project, and also the curator for Wool Street Art Festival. Inspired by Lara’s LATA65 project, Nuart have been running a popular seniors program for several years now.
Like Lara, we noticed the audience for Street Art was much broader than was being publicised, we noticed a lot of pensioners were joining street art tours and attending openings and wondered if Lara’s project and philosophy would transcend borders, and of course it did. We’ve since had participants aged between 80 and 100 years join the workshops and in 2018 toured the regions old peoples homes.
