Description

The 2018 Belfast Photo Festival Compact is Northern Ireland's premier visual arts festival.

In association with Quilter Cheviot, the photography festival celebrates some of the finest national and international contemporary photography.
Known previously as Belfast Photo Festival Youth Edition, the biennial event, last held in 2016, has been rebranded to Belfast Photo Festival Compact, a condensed festival format which includes the recently announced inaugural Capture Conference as well as a programme of workshops, seminars, exhibitions, tours and screenings.
Staged in a wide range of venues across Greater Belfast, the 2018 festival will explore the use of photography and music with two major exhibitions showcasing the works of visual artists, Brian Griffin and James Mollison. Other off-theme exhibition highlights include 'Air of the Anthropocene' by Robin Price, a collaborative exhibition merging photography and science to explore levels of air pollution, and 'Ready? OK!', a group exhibition of photographic works exploring race, religion, gender, sexuality, and politics in sport.
Following a series of youth-focused workshops, Cultúrlann will also host an exhibition of young people's work.
Belfast Photo Festival Compact is supported by investment management company, Quilter Cheviot, Belfast City Council and Arts Council Northern Ireland.
