Masque is a carnival arts project, it now also incorporates all forms of performance related activities such as dance, drama, costume and mask making, stage make-up, and set and float building.

Whilst the project provides cross-city links for large-scale performance events, groups can choose to focus on smaller community based performances, or experiment with different art forms without necessary working towards a final piece.  Works created through Masque have been showcased in carnivals and festivals in Belfast, Derry, and Sligo.
