Street Art Workshop

Young people from Bloomfield and Orangefield took part in a street art workshop on Sunday organised by Seedhead Arts.

They learned some spray skills and techniques from local street artist Emic, contributed to a group artwork and made their own piece using stencils to take home. 

The workshop was part of the EastSide Urban Gallery project which aims to extend the existing urban gallery of public and mural art in east Belfast. The project is funded by the Urban Villages Initiative, a key action within the Northern Ireland Executive’s ‘Together: Building a United Community’ Strategy. It is designed to improve good relations outcomes and to help develop thriving places where there has previously been a history of deprivation and community tension.

Look out for 2 new pieces of street art popping up in the EastSide Urban Village area in the coming months!
