A City Imagining: Making Places Together – Webinar Series – 23, 30 Sept and 7, 14, 21 Oct

Belfast City Council in partnership with Voluntary Arts Ireland presents

A City Imagining: Making Places Together – Webinar Series

Belfast is on a journey towards a more culturally vibrant city through its community plan, The Belfast Agenda, its cultural strategy, A City Imagining, and city regeneration initiatives including A Bolder Vision for Belfast.

BCC and VAI are inviting you to be part of this process and take part in our Making Places Together webinar series, to imagine, together, what we want for our city.

These free virtual discussions will explore ways to culturally activate spaces in a changing and uncertain world following the impact of COVID-19 on our social and economic lives.

Local and international activists and artists will share learning about creative placemaking and we hope the sessions will build connections and inspire positive change for Belfast.

The ‘A City Imagining: Making Places Together’ will take place every Wednesday at 10am online starting on 23 September. The series will culminate in a reflective discussion on 21 October.

Everyone is welcome to join us for a virtual conversation by Zoom on these dates:
