The Imagineer: Issue 1

A newsletter for children, families and the Children's Parliament mailing list about the Imagining Aberdeen Project

Children’s Parliament is working with children from four Aberdeen City schools. The children are Imagining Aberdeen as a place where all children are healthy, happy, safe and doing their best at school.

So far 300 children have taken part in workshops at school, thinking and talking together about some big ideas like human dignity. The children created an amazing new way to measure dignity – this they have called a dignometer! See one below...

Imagining Aberdeen: Human Dignity Dignometer
In the next phase of the project 5 children from each of our 4 schools will work with artists and a film-maker to represent their vision for the city. 
  • Taking part from Bramble Brae Primary School are Ben, Jamie, Lucy, Shannon S and Tijana.
  • Taking part from Riverbank Primary School are Gabrielle, Keira, Leo, Mikey and Ralfs.
  • Taking part from Manor Park Primary School are Abdullah, Demi, Dylan, Malachy and Miriam.
  • Taking part from Tullos Primary School are Katie, Demi, Sean-Paul, Aidan and Cody.

What’s in store for our Imagineers?

Wednesday, 18th May is TEAM DAY
We are getting the full team together for the first time! Our 20 Imagineers will meet each other and the Children’s Parliament team of artists - who will be on hand throughout the next stage to help the children in their role as imagineers.

Monday 23rd to Friday 27th May is MURAL WEEK + DVD PROJECT
Over the course of this week, the children will create a large-scale mural that represents all of the ideas from the 300 children who took part in the school workshops. We are also making a short film to capture all the great ideas our imagineers have.

The Imagining Aberdeen blog will be updated everyday during Mural Week with pictures and ideas from the participating children. You can get involved by leaving your own comments underneath the blog posts. It would be great to hear what you have to say! (
