Creative and Cultural Belfast
We’re investing £900,000 in the Creative and Cultural Belfast project along with the Arts Council of Northern Ireland.
This programme will give everyone in Belfast the opportunity to be inspired by our rich cultural life.
We’ve created a short animated film to let you know about the programme and how to get involved.
What are the first projects?
The first four big, bold, creative projects to be funded as part of Creative and Cultural Belfast are:
Farset Béal Feirste
The River Farset gave Belfast its name, but today, it has largely been built over and forgotten. A partnership between Cultúrlann and Spectrum Centre, Abhainn bheo na Fearsaide will return the Farset to the heart of Belfast through creative workshops, heritage digs and public art.
On 27 September 2015, Replay Theatre Company will bring the world’s first BabyDay to Belfast. It will decorate the city with playful art and fill the streets with families, much like on Culture Night – but for babies.
Draw Down the Walls 2015
Golden Thread Gallery is commissioning a new visual arts project. We know it will be created by an internationally renowned artist, and we know that it will help us imagine a Belfast without barriers, but we're looking forward to hearing about all the other details to be revealed.
See the city transformed as Nine Nights takes centre stage at City Hall on 24 October 2015. An outdoor theatre spectacle by ArtsEkta, Nine Nights will combine music, dance and pyrotechnics, retelling centuries-old Hindu folklore as a thrilling, contemporary Belfast celebration.
