Community Arts Partnership – Side by Side Update – The Focus Club, Belfast

The Focus Club in Belfast hosted a Side By Side project during the last year as part of CAP’s Community Engagement Project (CEP). They were led through their creative process by artist/facilitator, Matt Farris. The group decided to make a film to present the range of personalities in their group and how well they all work together. They designed the storyline, developed the content, took part in interviews, made appearances, and Matt skill-fully created the movie itself.

They group had their premier in their centre last week and were delighted to see themselves on screen. One of their members, Robert, finished the occasion by leading everyone in a song.

They hope that you will take a few minutes to watch their movie and find out more about the members of the Focus Group. CAP sends a big congratulations to everyone who took part in this gorgeous movie and a big thanks to Matt for his super work in making this film.

If you or your group would like to apply for a Side By Side CEP project, feel free to do this as soon as you can or contact Carole Kane on this email: to find out more.
