Get creative in the Arts Resource Centre

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 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 on 7 Donegall Street Place (BT1 2FN, Belfast) The ARC is here to provide facilities and support for artists and organisations throughout Northern Ireland. We have 3 rooms available for hire:

Performance Cafe & Conference room

Arts & Crafts Workshop room

Geoff Harden music studios

  • Spaces for small or larger events
  • HD projector and sound system
  • Disability access
  • Special hire rates for community groups and charities
  • Hot and cold food can be supplied
  • Free of charge evening car parking
