From its beginnings in a former linen mill on a contested ‘peace line’ in North Belfast, Golden Thread Gallery has delivered annual programmes of exhibitions and activities designed to make a real contribution to the visual arts and wider communities in Northern Ireland. Golden Thread Gallery has developed a reputation for its engagement with recent histories and re-imagined futures. Much of its work is in partnership with communities and adheres to a mantra of ‘nothing about us without us’. Best known of these projects is Draw Down the Walls.
Golden Thread Gallery publishes and sells a wide variety of art books, periodicals and journals. Artworks are also available for sale through the gallery’s dedicated sales area for all art lovers and collectors to enjoy.
