Young at Art
Young at Art is one of Northern Ireland's leading children's arts not-for-profit companies and home of Young at Art Events and the Belfast Children's Festival. From its base in Belfast's city centre, Young at Art coordinates not only an international festival and a touring events agency, but also a wide variety of projects that encourage children and young people under 18 to enjoy the arts.
Established in 1998 as the creator of the region’s first international arts festival for children and young people, it has grown both the festival (the Belfast Children’s Festival) and its year-round programme to significant levels of both access and quality. The organisation now engages with 50,000 children and adults each year, delivering performances, workshops, exhibitions and special projects, all tailored to their needs. It is recognised as ambitious, sensitive and closely connected to both artists and the society in which it works.
Get in touch to take part in one of the schools education and training programmes or a free creative writing workshop with Fighting Words Belfast.
The team is also available to hire to organise your family event. Visit the Young at Art website to see what family events they are taking part in year-round across Northern Ireland.
Young at Art believes passionately that every child should have the right to access exciting and original creative experiences, regardless of who they are or where they come from.
