Delve into the Deen was a night of music, art, food, drink and even magic held at Underdog on Sunday night in aid of both Diabetes UK and Erskine.

Diabetes UK cares for, connects with and campaigns on behalf of those with diabetes. Providing peer support they have 300,000 supporters, 5,000 volunteers and 6,000 healthcare professionals.

Erskine cares for over 1,000 residents each year and provide veterans with care and companionship.

In 2016 Erskine had to raise £8.8m to support the veterans in their care, totalling to £170k each week.

Delve into the Deen was part of the Aberdeen Student Festival which was held from the 21st – 23rd  April.

The festival hosted multiple art and cultural events in Aberdeen that aimed to highlight the existing culture in the city.

In an aim to support both these charities many raffle prizes were donated by local businesses such as Siberia, Brew Dog, Institute, Transition extreme and Lochter Activity Centre.

An event representative said that the night was “to promote Aberdeen as a city of culture.”

The venue was more than suitable for this event as Brewdog is not only a local business itself but supports anything local such as musicians and artists who were at this event.

One of the artists was Rory Barclay, aged 23 who is studying 2nd year contemporary art practise at Grays School Of Art, Aberdeen.

Rory said “it’s important that things like this happen more often”. He stated how he believed how “noncomplex it has to be to say something powerful”, which was clearly demonstrated in his photography for sale on the night.

The event aimed to raise £1,000 and due to the great turnout, support and raffle ticket sales, was exceeded.

Many of the artists continue to create and sell their work. An exhibition of 2nd year Grays Students art will on be show at Hatch from the 26th-28th May.
