Maritime Belfast Trust, the charity that preserves and promotes Belfast’s maritime heritage, has worked with Belfast Exposed, Northern Ireland’s leading photography organisation, and the local community to create a photograph exhibition that will be launched as part of the Belfast Maritime Festival.

This exhibition showcases photographs taken by local community neighbourhoods of Belfast’s historic waterfront. The photographs capture what local residents love about the waterfront, and what makes them feel connected to the area.

The photographs were taken by people of all ages from Sailortown, East Belfast, the Market Area, Lower Ormeau Residents Action Group, as well as local businesses and attractions on the Maritime Mile. The groups were encouraged to consider the waterfront through the lens of various themes including neighbourhoods, the Maritime Mile, wildlife, festivals and industry.

This project is funded by Belfast City Council.

The exhibition will launch at Belfast Maritime Festival and be located on Hamilton Dock until mid-October 2023.
