‘Today we have started our mural. We have all week to complete it. We have been drawing buses, people, houses and dogs, imagining a better Aberdeen. It is nice being in a group of people and them being helpful to you and you helping them draw.’

Cody and Jamie

‘We are drawing ourselves as Imagineers on a landscape and then chalking out our sketches. I have been chalking slides coming out of a school and into a swimming pool. In my area the slides aren’t that good because people vandalise them. Making friends and meeting new people is my favourite thing about mural week.

Miriam and Ralfs

‘Being listened to gives us human dignity. My mum and my best friend listen to me. I’d like to draw them on the mural.’

Demi and Dylan

‘Being an Imagineer feels fun because you get to paint. Exciting because we’re going new places, meeting new children and painting a mural. Overwhelming but fun!’

Sean Paul, Tijana and Gabrielle
