The first Belfast Culture Night held last year attracted over 15,000 people and this year there is even more happening. With free events happening in over 100 venues around the city, there will be something for everyone. ArtsEkta are holding creative workshops on Chinese Calligraphy, Japanese Origami, Rangoli Art and Pinnata Art in Writer’s Square. Frank are producing and editing a live chain of video in real time and projecting it on a large-scale from their 3rd floor studio on Talbot Street. MCE Public Relations are hosting a pecha kucha style political and cultural debate on ‘whose culture is it anyway?‘ in the War Memorial Hall on Waring street.
Belly-dancing lessons, giant puppets, candy making and Indian dance are just a few of the other eclectic attractions.
“For residents and visitors alike, Culture Night offers an unrivalled opportunity to sample some of the city’s finest cultural delights. Belfast is a thriving cultural centre and an artistic showcase like Culture Night provides huge opportunities for participation and celebration, as well as a platform to engage with new audiences”. Roisin McDonough, Chief Executive of the Arts Council of Northern Ireland
