EastSide Arts is a registered charity. We raise the money we need to pay our staff and run our programmes by applying to a variety of funders, Trusts and Foundations. Our principal funder is Arts Council NI, and we are also supported to run the annual EastSide Arts Festival by Belfast City Council. We couldn’t do our work without the ongoing support of our brilliant sponsors Translink (Principal Sponsor), Hewitt & Gilpin and Connswater Shopping Centre & Retail Park. We are also grateful to the Arts & Business Investment Programme and to Paul Hamlyn Foundation, Belfast Harbour, Enkalon, DfC Social Enterprise Fund, Third Source, Halifax Foundation, Future Screens NI for recent vital support.

volunteer with US
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.
We are always looking for new volunteers and in return for giving up some of your time we offer the opportunity to make a difference for others and see some of the most exciting events taking place in east Belfast.
Please contact Aimee to find out more about how to volunteer with EastSide Arts
*Please note all new volunteers must complete a simple induction which includes an Access NI check
