We are guided and motivated by 5 core goals — some are core founding principles and some are ambitions that we’re striving for.
Every Ten Feet Tall project vividly reflects them, on-stage and off.
Celebrate place by promoting the creativity within the North East of Scotland.
Connect people and communities through a range of participatory programmes.
Ensure sustainability and diversity are part of the fabric of the company’s structure, advocacy and artistic output.
Tell more stories in accessible and innovative ways across multiple platforms to grow audiences.
Increase education and development opportunities for emerging talent in Aberdeen and the wider North East.
We believe every person should have an outlet to engage their imagination and creativity. Our mission is to empower people, fuse connections and inspire a more creative world.
