Greenway Engagement Leader- Main Purpose of Role

Van Morrison
We are delighted that EastSide Arts has been shortlisted for a Northern Ireland Tourism Award 2016 in the Best Event/ Festival category for the Van Morrison: Live on Cyprus Avenue event in August 2015.

Visual Artists Ireland, in association with EastSide Arts, invite you to attend this event to find out more about the visual arts exhibition spaces, studios, resources and collectives in East Belfast.

This networking and information event will be an excellent opportunity to meet other artists and arts organisations in an informal setting.

Earlier this year the EastSide Partnership, in association with Belfast City Council, launched a campaign to name three bridges and a major new pathway as part of the Connswater Community Greenway. The public put forward their suggestions and a panel of judges then selected the top 2 under each category which went out to public vote last month. 

Last month the Connswater Community Greenway in partnership with Belfast City Council gave the public the opportunity to officially name major links along the Greenway including three bridges within Greenville Park and Orangefield Park, and a major new pathway that extends from Orangefield Park to Braniel.  

The judges met and are now asking the public to vote for their favourite. To view the options and to vote visit the Connswater Community Greenway website

EastSide Partnership offices will be closed for Easter on Monday 28th and Tuesday 29th March.

May we take this opportunity to wish everyone a very Happy Easter.
