Creative Roundup 30th May
We plan to regularly bring you some of our favourite things for NI creatives – upcoming funding and support, events, opportunities and inspiration.
This week we’re loving Belfast Photo Festival, particularly their Botanic Gardens Exhibit which is just near our Malone Studios and a lovely lunchtime activity, especially on sunny days.
This edition of Belfast Photo Festival explores untold stories, under-represented narratives and perspectives on the world that too often go unseen. Celebrating photography that pushes against dominant social, cultural, historical and visual frameworks.
DATE: 02 – 30 June 2022
