Sharing cultural diversity is at the heart of everything we do.

Aberdeen Multicultural Centre is committed to celebrating the many ethnic communities there are in Aberdeen and the North East of Scotland. One of the key avenues to do this is through cultural sharing and performing arts. Aberdeen Mela – One World Day is a wonderful platform and showcase for this with performers coming from across the region, Scotland and the rest of the UK. With a mix of professional artists and community performers the programme, across each stage, will be varied and highly entertaining.

 

Want to be a Performer

We are always looking for professional and non-professional artists for Aberdeen Mela – OWD and other events that showcase the rich and diverse people and communities that make up the North East of Scotland and the UK.
