Thank you for agreeing to participate in the Robert Gordon University Public Art & the Riverside Campus Strategy (PARC) Questionnaire.

The Scottish Government's International Design Summit on 29/30 May 2012 launched a consultation on their 'Policy on Architecture and Place for Scotland'. In this, and exploring the notion of 'Culture, Economy and Place', Chief Executive of Creative Scotland Andrew Dixon spoke about the importance of cultural initiatives engaging locals, animating the city, and putting right 100 years of underinvestment to "bring people back to the river". He and Creative Scotland believe that Scotland hasn’t celebrated its cultural strengths and sense of pride enough.

So, considering this strategic viewpoint, a new Public Arts Strategy for RGU, once agreed and adopted, hopes to look and focus both on the 'internal' riverside campus at Garthdee as well as it's 'external' relationships. A separate RGU Cultural Engagement Strategy is currently also under consideration, and this will be informed by any newly adopted Public Art Strategy.

In the short term phase, practical outputs might include applied artwork and 'artistic techology' in or around the main entrance to the new Garthdee Campus buildings - including the new Library Learning Tower; Beyond this (and of course subject to agreed priority, and sustainable business & fundraising plans over the longer term) RGU hopes to to then consider a wider series of creative art, design and technology projects, ranging from those dealing specifically with the architectural and landscape environment; to others aimed at creating collaboration between disciplines; or engagement with local communities and partners. It is envisaged that some of these cultural 'outputs' will be permanent, whilst others will be of a temporary, durational, or performative nature.

Please consider the following seven questions, and feel free to add-in any personal comments if desired.

You may of course also opt out at any point.

Thank you.
