This project blogsite operates as a reference and tool for the developing Cultural and Engagement Strategy for Robert Gordon University, and which includes Public Art & the Riverside strategy for it's Garthdee Campus. The blog has been prepared by Ian Banks of appointed art consultants Atoll, and who is collaborating on the strategy with new media artist Clive Gillman and lighting consultant Reg Gove of Lightfolio. The blog is focussed not just towards the Garthdee campus and University only, but explores the context of a wider Aberdeen. In terms of confidentiality, for the moment at least the blogsite is openly accessible, but does not contain information on the strategy that is deemed sensitive. This access arangement may change.

The University Art and Heritage Collections exist to enable students, staff and the wider community to explore collections for learning, enjoyment and inspiration by preserving and presenting artworks and artefacts reflecting the history and output of the Robert Gordon University.

The Art and Heritage Collections were awarded Full Museum Accreditation by Museums Libraries and Archives Council in February 2009.

We regularly hold exhibitions of the work of students and graduates. Here are the exhibitions currently on show and our latest news.
