Dramatic Convergence

Dramatic Convergence has been developed with Aberdeen Performing Arts and NHS Grampian Archives to celebrate the centenary of the Joint Hospital Scheme. The scheme was the first to bring public health services and medical education together in one location. This ultimately resulted in what can be seen now on the Foresterhill Health Campus.

In early 2021 we commissioned 4 artists, Graeme Roger, Lucie Treacher, Chris Lee and Adrian Reid, to collaborate on the project with APA’s Youth Theatre both online and in socially distanced workshops, to create a body of work that will include an exhibition and publication at the end of the year.
