Chalk dont chalk 08 06 2023 2560x Clarke Joss Photography 19



SATURDAY & SUNDAY 11:00–15:00, For kids aged 3–99, FREE ENTRY

Marischal College, Quadrangle, Broad Street, AB10 1BL

The 2024 edition of Chalk Don’t Chalk could produce the world’s largest single chalk drawing when potentially thousands of children descend on Marischal Square to rewild the quad under the watchful and encouraging eye of artist Molly Hankinson. The gigantic floor-based mural is sure to inject a pop of colour in the Granite City.

This is the third time Nuart Aberdeen hosts the event, and this year’s installation will be larger and more ambitious than ever. Led by artist Molly Hankinson, the goal is to create one of the biggest chalk murals in the world.

The Scottish artist will begin work on the mural in the run-up to the festival, while all children will be welcome to participate on June 8 and 9.

Festival artist Molly Hankinson says, ‘I can’t wait to get inspired by Aberdeen’s young people and local community at Nuart’s ‘Chalk Don’t Chalk’ interactive public art installation, we’re we’ll get the chance to collaborate to create one of the UK’s largest chalk murals. I’m looking forward to seeing how much it changes over the festival! I’m so excited to be involved with Nuart Festival for the first time this year, and I think ‘Chalk Don’t Chalk is the perfect place to start!’
