Welcome to Belfast’s newest cradle of creativity
It has been New Belfast Community Arts Initiative t/a Community Arts Partnership’s long-held intention to develop a dedicated multi-purpose community arts centre in the heart of Belfast city centre.
Since 2003, CAP and others have sought the development of a physical space, where the additional benefits of concentrating and clustering creative and socially-economic activity can multiply the capacity of the organisation and see more significant and crucially sustainable creative development emerge.
Situated in the Cathedral Quarter, The ARC provides facilities for small or larger events in a disability accessible building. We can also provide hot and cold food on request and free of charge evening car parking.
The ARC has 3 main rooms available for hire:
