A renowned designer is set to appear in Aberdeen as part of a festival.
Organisers of one of Scotland’s leading visual art and design festivals, Look Again, have revealed Wayne Hemingway MBE is coming to the city next month.
He will launch the five-day event on Thursday, April 27.
The festival runs until Monday, May 1, and is delivered through a partnership between Robert Gordon University (RGU) and independent art agency SMART.
It celebrates the very best in visual art and design and showcases projects by internationally recognised creatives.
As part of the Scottish year of history, heritage and archaeology, artists have delved into Aberdeen’s archives to create work which reflects the North-east’s culture – past and present.
This year, a campus programme will also run the week before the festival begins at RGU.
Wayne, who co-founded fashion label Red or Dead, and now runs HemingwayDesign, is expected to visit a number of the public artworks across the city.
Hemingway will also attend the Look Again launch party and take the role of official DJ at city venue Underdog.
He said: “I always love coming up to Aberdeen and have heard great things about Look Again.
“At HemingwayDesign we are involved in some wonderful projects and events that have interesting learnings to pass on.
“On top of that though, I am bringing some of my rare soul, funk and disco records up so put on your dancing shoes.”
Hemingway will also host a workshop for invited guests and give a public talk at the city’s Belmont Filmhouse.
He will discuss his inspirational career and reveal how festivals can transform the places that we live in.
Festival director Sally Reaper said: “Building on an inspirational talk to Aberdeen Festivals by Jude Kelly, director of Southbank Centre, last year, Look Again is delighted to bring another major cultural leader to Aberdeen.”
