Artist Workspace Belfast

Belfast City Council

Have your say on artist studios in Belfast

Belfast City Council and the Arts Council NI is looking for existing and emerging artists to participate in a research study that will explore the current and future requirements of artist workspaces in Belfast.

We want to hear your:

  • Opinions on the optimum artist environment
  • Understanding of the quality and demand for spaces to date
  • Ideas on the future of artists workspaces

The range of art disciplines in Belfast is constantly evolving and this has resulted in a need to futureproof emerging new spaces. Therefore, to inform future development proposals, we want to assess the optimal working environments for artists to ensure the city has sufficient fit-for-purpose workspaces that meet the current and future needs of the sector. This requires further exploration and we value your input.


How can I get involved?

Our survey

We recently ran an online survey to capture views, opinions and experiences from Belfast’s artist community in relation to artist workspace provision.

The survey closed on Friday 07 April and we are currently analysing all responses received.

Take part in a workshop

We will also be hosting a workshop to further explore themes emerging from the survey. The session will take place on Wednesday 26th April, 9:30am to 11am at 2 Royal Avenue, Belfast. If you are interested in participating in the workshop, please register your place below.
