October 21, 2015 – October 24, 2015
Belfast Open Studios 2015 is scheduled to take place on Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th October. Part of the series of events will be a specific programme for visiting curators. Last year over 54 curators visited Belfast during Open Studios and were given unique access to the studios and to events such as Show & Tells, information and background packs, and networking opportunities.
This year we plan to have another packed programme.
Wednesday, 21st will be the starting point with a visit to Derry to visit their gallery spaces;
Thursday 22nd will be a chance for curators to speak about their work and their interests as well as a chance to meet each other and artists; the day will finish with the announcement of the winner of the Suki Tea Art Prize at the Open Studios launch event which will take place in Stormont;
Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th will allow the curators to visit studios.
Participating curators will receive a full information pack with details of all of the studio programmes and their participating artists. This will allow for forward planning. The pack will only be available to curators who are participating in the events.
There are many affordable accommodation options in Belfast, we suggest using booking.com for the best prices.
