The CatParade Project was inspired by previous successful civic art projects in Aberdeen such as the 2005 Catwalk and 2014 Dolphin Sculpture projects.
The purpose of the CatParade Project was to:
The project involved replicas of the Kelly’s Cat Statues, which adorn the parapet of Union Bridge, being transformed into unique works of art. The cats are synonymous with Aberdeen’s strong civic pride.
An exhibition ran from the 1st to the 27th of September 2016 in the Union Bridge windows of Waterstones.
Unicef is the world’s leading organisation for children, promoting the rights and wellbeing of every child.
CLAN Cancer Support provides comfort support and information, free of charge, for anyone, of any age, affected by any type of cancer.
The CatParade concluded with a prestigious exhibition and auction of the decorated Cats on the 28th September 2016 at The Marcliffe.
All sponsors were invited to the event with their decorated Cats.
