The Arts Council of Northern Ireland is moving out of MacNeice House in south Belfast on October 23rd 2015. The Council’s move has been welcomed as a cost saving exercise and is in keeping with the Department of Finance’s Government Estate Management Strategy.
Arts Council staff will make the short-term move to The Sidings in Lisburn and the organisation hopes there will be as little disruption as possible to services for clients. It is anticipated that the move will be for a period of up to circa 18 months and reviewed thereafter.
The Council looks forward to inviting clients to its Lisburn premises and plans to issue new contact details and full directions to the the new offices shortly. It is our intention to source an office space in Belfast which can be used periodically by officers and the sector for meetings. The new office is within short walking distance of both Bow Street Mall and Lisburn Railway Station. Full directions and contact information will be issued in due course.
