    Did you know our Hill Street studios has a mezzanine level, letting in plenty of natural light for our residents and extra workspace. On the ground floor we have a lovely lounge, kitchen, WCs and more deskspaces.

Hill Street is a beautiful narrow cobbled street that was first dipected on a Belfast map in 1757. It was originally named Pott-House Lane as it housed a pottery shop, meaning Hill Street has always been home to creatives!

    To celebrate Good Relations Week 2021 ‘Brighter Days Ahead’ for Young People, our resident  @creatingaspace have teamed up with @allnationsbelfast to create a project called "How They See Us'.

'How They See Us' is a project that investigates how people from different backgrounds navigate their lives.

The project explores how people think society sees them as an individual, and what labels and stereotypes have been placed upon them based on how they look, their race, their ethnicity or where they are "from".

In this season, we have interviewed 5 amazing individuals from different cultural backgrounds, who shared their experiences of what it is like being a person of colour in NI and what their experiences have been like growing up here.

We talked about the struggles of navigating identity, representation, grief, belonging, race, discrimination and self-love & acceptance.

For this event, we will be having a panel discussion with some of the people that took part in the project.
We will be asking them about
- How they felt about sharing their story
- What they have learned about themselves throughout this project
- How they see their future

Stay tuned for the release of the full project!

Grab your ticket via @creatingaspace's link in bio!

This project is funded by Community Relations Council.
