Creative Roundup 10th June
Here is a roundup of some of our favourite things for creatives, upcoming funding and support, events, opportunities and inspiration this week.
Belfast School of Art – part of the reason we have chosen to have studios in South Belfast and the Cathedral Quarter is being close to the city’s two universities. The creative energy creates such a lovely buzz in an area. This time of year in particular with the end of year shows at Belfast School of Art creates endless amounts of creative inspiration.
DATE: 06 – 18 June
Belfast Book Festival – lots of different book related events and activities
DATE: 10 – 19 June
