Just Start Here

A festival of new work and Scottish artists.

Part of Engine Room.

A celebration, a party and a unique chance to see the artists and theatre-makers of today in the here and now, Just Start Here is the beginning of something.

A two day festival hosted in Aberdeen, come and witness this creative playground for Scottish artists. The core of Just Start Here is bold live presentation of fresh ideas – from work-in-progress performances, dance and music through to cross art form experimentation. Orbiting these radical performances are provocative talks, discussions and debates on the future of the arts and activism. How did we get here? And where are we heading next? Just Start Here invites you to join the trip.

In partnership with Citymoves.
