Over the years we have been involved with a number of partners- artists, community organisations, building/landowners, funders- in the installation of a number of pieces of street art and murals in east Belfast. We think these are a great way of telling local stories and brightening up the area.
Which is your favourite?


Back in 2013 over 300 people, dressed in something blue, took part in ‘Walking Off The Blues’, a walk from what is now C.S. Lewis Square along the Connswater Community Greenway route to Victoria Park.
We can’t believe it’s been 7 years since EastSide Learning was established! Over these years EastSide Learning has been working with schools, community groups, service providers and families to support children and young people in their learning journey.
Back in 2015 Van Morrison played two sold out, memorable concerts on the iconic Cyprus Avenue which coincided with his 70th birthday!
Did you know that as well as organising the Cyprus Avenue gigs, we also organised the Big Top Festival at Aircraft Park (2012) which Van headlined and arranged a special concert at Orangefied High School (Van's old school) in 2014, the year it closed?


Our tenth 25th anniversary throwback shows the transformation of a section of the Newtownards Road at Holywood Arches over the past 9 years. Take a look at how the road looks now and how it looked in the past...

Check out some before and after pictures of C.S. Lewis Square - what a difference a few years makes!
Did you notice that as an organisation we are fond of a name change? 
Over the past 25 years we have had 3 different names; we went from Greater East Belfast Partnership (1995/96) to East Belfast Partnership (2002) and then EastSide Partnership (2016).
We may have changed our name but we have always been dedicated to the regeneration of east Belfast.


Back in 2012, concerned with the lack of development of arts in the area we supported an initiative by a number of local people to organise an arts festival; the East Belfast Arts Festival. Were you there? Here is the original programme for a bit of nostalgia>>

Back in August 2016 EastSide Visitor Centre opened to the public. Check out the transformation from a derelict building to a thriving space!
