Belfast is a weird, passionate, messed up place. The legacy of past conflict is about more than people, it’s about place. It’s about how the people of Belfast navigate this divided city, and how we build shared spaces for people of all backgrounds to co-exist.
If you spend any time in Belfast you’ll know that its walls are covered in art. Often this art has been used to mark territory for one side or the other but recently, alongside this, something transformative has been bubbling. Street artists from across the globe have joined a new breed of Belfast-based street artists to leave their mark on the city. This art speaks of love, of laughter, of anger, of beauty and of defiance, but most of all it speaks of Belfast and the place that it’s becoming.
Seedhead Arts run a weekly tour in the Cathedral Quarter, but just for EastSide they’re doing a tour of all the great work that there is in the east and the stories behind them.
Meet at The Vault Artist Studios, 4- 84 Tower Street Belfast BT5 4FH.
