Time & Tide

Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 January 2022: 10am – 4pm (Drop in)  

Fittie Community Hall, New Pier Road, Aberdeen, AB11 5DR 

As part of our Safe Harbour: Open Sea project, we’re delighted to present Time & Tide, which has been created by artist and producer Martin Aitken.  

As the Fittie Community Hall closes its doors for a second phase of redevelopment, we invite you to share the moment of transition and anticipation for the future with us. The Hall is a central part of the Fittie community and Aberdeen as a place where we come together and welcome others. Experience the Community Hall in a new light through our immersive audio-visual installation. We’ll be using images and sound to celebrate the people of Fittie past and present, as well as the community’s history and relationship with the sea. We’ll also be looking forward to the next phase of life for the Hall and Fittie as we journey towards a sustainable future for both. No need to book, just drop in.

Mirage Book Launch

On Sunday 21st November at 7pm, a member of the Safe Harbour: Open Sea team, Victoria Fifield, is launching her new book, ‘Mirage’.

This story of Victoria’s experiences in the Bedouin city of Rahat is ‘told with humour, humility and honesty’ and offers a glimpse into one of the world’s most rapidly changing cultures. It explores the challenges of working in communities as an outsider, and beautifully illustrates the Bedouin proverb, ‘we learn little from success, but much from failure.’
