As a not for profit organisation Creative Cultures’ aim is the advancement of the arts, heritage and culture. We aspire to act as a catalyst for the flow of ideas, innovation and expertise that will add social value and economic gain to the region. In doing so, we use a combination of information technology and live events to encourage networking and make positive connections that will ensure growth and vibrancy within the creative and cultural industries in the region. The portal for Aberdeen City and Shire is a Virtual Creative and Cultural Centre that represents all sectors including; craft, education (promoting life long learning in a variety of formal and informal contexts), enterprise, design (including architecture, heritage and planning), media, music, performing arts, visual arts and the written word.
