The development of an iconic new arts centre in Aberdeen's Union Terrace Gardens is described as one of Scotland's most exciting cultural projects. The new centre is expected to deliver a host of economic, social and tourism benefits to Aberdeen's City Centre.
As well as annually attracting around 200,000 visitors and bringing around £4m per year into the local economy, it is also to have a strong educational focus - engaging thousands of young people with the arts and creative industries.
Examples of cultural facilities regenerating cities around the world support the need of a new contemporary art centre in Aberdeen.
This innovative project which is set to be a fantastic facility for both tourists and the local community and provide Union Terrace Gardens with better access, a safer environment and a new focal point with out being too detrimental to it's thriving ecosystem and landscape which has been evolving since the 17th century, has now been blown out of the water, and looks unlikely to survive in the face of new plans to 'deck over' Union Terrace Gardens by Sir Ian Wood.
If you believe strongly in preserving a beautiful historic landscape and helping create a brighter, better future for Aberdeen then please, sign this petition.
We, the undersigned, call on Aberdeen City Council to Save the new Contemporary Art Centre in Union Terrace Gardens.
