exhibitions in 'between' spaces in Belfast 

Title_edited.jpg

Phase 1: - Open Call & Research 2023

Belfast is full of underused, overlooked and unloved spaces. Pockets of neglected land, development sites in limbo, vacant buildings, lonely car parks, empty windows.

 

IMAGINING how something could be different is the first step towards making it happen, so let’s bring these forgotten spaces into focus. 

 

This is the first phase of an arts-based consultation process which will highlight, gather and map a range of overlooked, underused and unloved spaces with the view to making actual use of them in future programming with Imagine and other partners.  

 

We want citizens of Belfast to share the unloved spaces of the city which catch their attention.

Maybe you have a story of what they once were, what you imagine they could be, or even find a particular beauty in what they are at the moment. Tell us.

 

Creative submissions (illustration, photography, drawing, painting, film stills) are particularly encouraged. The results of this project will be presented in an online exhibition in the lead up to the Imagine Festival 2023 with a prize giving event and discussion taking place on during the festival (details TBA).
