Leading international arts charity for children. Home of Belfast Children's Festival and Young at Art Events, running quality events all year.

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.
