Look Again Festival invites you to ‘become a tourist in your own city’ by seeing Aberdeen city centre through fresh eyes. Look Again Festival is a celebration of the very best contemporary visual art and design, showcasing both local and internationally acclaimed talent in Aberdeen.

Aligning with Scotland’s ‘Year of Young People’, Look Again Festival’s 2018 programme will see artists and designers respond to the theme of ‘Serious Play’. Three iconic locations; Marischal College Quad, Broad Street and Castlegate, will be animated with an array of live art and performance, playable structures, interactive workshops and creative interventions across the four-day festival.

Look Again 2018 has been made possible thanks to the kind support of: The Robert Gordon University, SMART, Creative Scotland and Aberdeen City Council. Look Again is a member of Aberdeen Festivals sponsored by Nexen and is an official supporting partner of the Year of Young People 2018.
