During 2014 and 2015, Station House Media Unit established and ran a project called Collective Compositions. The project, which was funded by Creative Scotland, aimed to capture and celebrate the music of minority ethnic communities in Aberdeen through studio recordings and a documentary film.

The project worked with 16 acts as well as a seven-person film team to produce a compilation CD, a documentary film and two live performances. The first performance was hosted by Aberdeen University's Elphinstone Institute and the second at The Lemon Tree.

The screening of the volunteer-produced documentary will be followed by a 57 Degrees North-led discussion in the cafe about minority ethnic communities and music. A number of speakers have been invited to present their thoughts and ideas on the subject, then we'll open up the floor for general questions and contributions.
