On Thursday 15th September the Arts and Heritage team at RGU hosted an ‘Artachat’, a dynamic discussion and debate between local artists and audiences. Thirty five artists and other guests participated in discussions about collaborating in the arts, with guest speakers Angus Farquhar from environmental art champions NVA, Peter McCaughey lecturer in public art at Glasgow School of Art and Debbie Beeson and Blane Johnson, graduates of Grays.
Artachats are hosted and led by artist Rocca Gutteridge, who has developed her own unique style of encouraging lively discussion and debate with participation from audience members. Hosting this event has allowed RGU to work directly with the arts community in the North East and we hope many more artists and art lovers will come to the two future Artachats we are planning in the New Year.
