At EastSide Arts we have a vision of east Belfast as a thriving cultural hub; where the arts are valued, creativity is for everyone and people are connected with each other and the wider world. We strive to make east Belfast a better place through creativity and the arts.  

From 2021 – 2024 our work focusses on three themes: CONNECT, CREATE, CELEBRATE

EASTSIDE Arts Festival

The EastSide Arts Festival takes place in multiple venues across east Belfast every August. The 11-day festival celebrates the artists, past and present, that call east Belfast home, and the vibrant creative and cultural heritage of this part of the city. We warmly invite you to come and explore the east, it might surprise you!

Community Arts

EastSide Arts is committed to developing arts and creativity in east Belfast by providing local and accessible opportunities for everyone and supporting local and emerging artists. We offer an exciting year round programme in collaboration with a wide variety of groups and organisations and are always available for creative advice and support.

Get Involved

Our dedicated volunteers are vital members of our team, year-round, and the face of our annual EastSide Arts Festival. With roles in front of house, workshop assistance, project support, ushering, ticketing and the odd set build, volunteering with EastSide Arts is a varied and rewarding role for people from all walks of life.
