An Aberdeen street art festival has been given a national award following a public poll. Over four days in April, international artists gathered to brighten up the city by creating large public murals for Nuart. Business organisation Aberdeen Inspired played a large role in developing the festival, and has now been commended at the 2017 National Business Improvement District (BID) Awards for this. Following an online vote by members of the public and deliberation by an expert panel, it was awarded the Place Management award over five other BIDs from across the UK. The win marks the fourth award Nuart Aberdeen has won, including helping the city toward its European BID of the Year victory in July. Adrian Watson, chief executive of Aberdeen Inspired, said: “We’re absolutely delighted that Nuart Aberdeen has been recognised with another national award against strong competition from across the UK. “The festival was very successful and sparked a huge amount of interest in the city with large crowds coming to the centre to see the street art throughout the year.
