2018 brings the return of the SPECTRA Catalyst Conference!

Designed to strengthen and sustain the cultural buzz in Aberdeen around the popular annual light festival, Catalyst takes place on the 9th and 10th February in the Anatomy Rooms at Marischal College.

Leading artists, designers, academics, business leaders and social entrepreneurs will once again come together again for the two day conference, with international partners from Iceland, Denmark, Finland and Norway, to identify ways to develop the cultural economy in Aberdeen while also fostering conditions to define, draw attention to and distinguish the industry and city on a global scale.

Run in collaboration with Creative Scotland’s Place Partnerships Team, the 2018 ticketed conference explores the theme of creative place-making, concentrating on the important role that the arts plays in improving a community’s wellbeing and prosperity

Headline speaker Martin Green, who successfully led Hull as the City of Culture 2017, will be joined by the First Lady of Iceland Eliza Reid, who is the co-founder of Iceland Writers Retreat as well as very actively promoting the art and literature scene in Iceland. Sif Gunnarsdóttir, Director of the Nordic House in the Faroe Islands is also confirmed as well as Hilary Nicholl, Associate Director of the Look Again Visual Art and Design Festival.
