Deadline for submissions: 3 July
Destination C.Q Business Improvement District (BID) is seeking submissions from Painters, Illustrators, Graphic Designers, Printmakers, Photographers, Fashion Designers, Sculptors and more to exhibit their artwork for sale in prominent street-facing windows of venues around the Cathedral Quarter.
Destination CQ BID is committed to supporting the identity of the Cathedral Quarter area as Belfast’s cultural heart. We know our artists help define the fabric of the city, nowhere more so than the Cathedral Quarter with so many galleries, street art and arts groups based within our district. Not everyone may get to enter a gallery every day, so we want to bring the gallery to them and make art an accessible part of everyday life.
The Cathedral Quarter is not just shops, bars and hotels but music venues, charities, art galleries, museums and churches. It’s this eclectic mix that makes the Cathedral Quarter one of the most exciting parts of Belfast.
Some of the venues who have already offered their windows include: The Merchant Hotel, Tivoli Barbers, Ink Monkey, Velo Café, Noblett’s Of North Street, Belfast Central Library, The Irish News, Oh Yeah Music Centre, Saint Anne’s Square Pizza Express, Direct Wine Shipments, Cathedral Graphics, Bullitt Hotel and PS Squared Gallery.
The exhibition will launch as part of the area’s First Thursdays initiative with Late Night Art on August 3rd 2017.
