Granite was a major new participatory arts project presented by the National Theatre of Scotland and Aberdeen City Council. It was held across seven months from September 2015 to April 2016 and celebrated the spirit of Aberdeen’s people and explored the city’s past, present and future.
A pre-Christmas programme of pop-up events around the city centre, was followed by a large-scale theatrical finale – featuring a cast including professional performers and community participants in the quadrangle of Marischal College, the largest grey granite building in the world.
