Community Arts Partnership is the leading organisation in providing arts facilitation projects in schools and communities in Northern Ireland.

Two of those projects are the Poetry in Motion projects (Schools and Community) which place working poets into short residential placements in schools and communities.

Supported by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, the Arts Council Lottery and Belfast City Council, these successful programmes are now in their fourteenth year.

Community Arts Partnership’s Poetry in Motion programmes include the The Seamus Heaney Award for New Writing (via Poetry in Motion Community) and the The Seamus Heaney Award for Achievement (via Poetry in Motion Schools) which are officially supported by the Seamus Heaney family.
