20:20 Vision – looking to the future

Community Arts Partnership is starting its 20th anniversary celebrations this year and to mark the year, we are unveiling a brand new Community Engagement Programme. Thanks to our principal funder, the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and to Belfast City Council for its continuing support, CAP is offering the 20:20 Vision

Since New Belfast Community Arts Initiative began in 1999/2000 we have supported over 80,000 participants, over 4,500 artist assignments in community arts locally.  Last year alone we had 5,500 participants on projects.

20:20 Vision – looking to the future

In providing true community arts engagement, promoting creativity and supporting wellbeing, community cohesion and cultural democracy, CAP is giving a fantastic birthday present to 20 eligible community groups and associations. That’s right, we’re giving 20 groups the opportunity to take part in our birthday programme with artists’ costs* and their project budgets** supported by CAP. Community groups just undertake to attend inductions, support participation and provide some incidental costs along the way and then take part in our finale celebrations next year!

  • 20 Groups on Community Engagement Programme

And there’s more…

  • 10 Groups on Inter-community, inter-ability programme
  • 10 groups on Poetry in Motion Community (writers groups)
  • 10 groups on Move to the Music – with the Ulster Orchestra (adult, rural groups preferred)

Keep an eye on your inbox and our website for further details and links to the application consultation process.
