Call out to Groups to Join the Rainbow Trail as a Symbol of Hope

ISLAND Arts Centre is encouraging children and adults across the city of Lisburn and Castlereagh to create a colourful rainbow for their windows and become part of a fun interactive nationwide ‘I-Spy a Rainbow Trail’.

Inviting citizens to take part, Alderman James Tinsley, the Chairman of Leisure and Community Development for Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council, said:

“It is crucial we all #StayHome#StaySafe and do our part to fight COVID19. It’s also important we look after our mental health and wellbeing by feeling connected and getting creative.

“This simple visual idea is a little day brightener and a wonderful way to let others know, you are thinking of them. So, please help spread the joy and make people smile as they spot your rainbow when passing your home!”

As sharing is caring, we’d also love you to send your pictures to us too for our digital ISLAND Family Gallery, that can share your art to others across the world.

If you and your friends and family have created any rainbows then please let us know by sending them into Or via ISLAND Arts Centre’s social media channels:
