Online Exhibition- SelfMade
Jun 4 @ 6:00 pm – Jun 29 @ 7:00 pm

Due to the venue being closed  can we not have our regular exhibitions in The Green Room, instead our exhibitions will be moved online.

SelfMade began as a portrait project in 2018, between artist and music enthusiast, Joanna Bain, and musician and content strategist Julie Hawk (HAVVK / Veta Records). Since its launch, it’s grown into a platform to explore DIY music in Ireland through events, discussion, art and performance. With a strong focus on women in music, SelfMade centres around putting artist voices first, opening up about the realities of running a music project and enabling artists to learn from one another’s shared experiences and challenges. “It’s easy to feel like you have to hold your cards close to your chest in the music industry,” says Julie. “SelfMade offers a safe space to celebrate the hard work being done by artists – the parts of the job that often go uncredited and that can impact detrimentally on their progress and mental health. We aren’t solely a visual project, but portraits have always been an important part of SelfMade – a way to invite people to connect with the musicians we host and to remind everyone that this is about listening to their story.” 

ROE by Joanna Bain, from our first Belfast event in 2018

Our goal is to celebrate the work of DIY musicians and to create a supportive space to explore the realities of getting a music project or career off the ground by:

-Providing a platform for independent musicians to learn, skill-share, and express their experiences.

-Creating opportunities for networking, community connections, collaboration, and exposure.

-Taking affirmative action to highlight and correct the underrepresentation of women in music.

POSTPONED-Belfast Street Art Walking Tour

Belfast Street Art Walking Tour

 

STARTS FROM: OUTSIDE THE DUKE OF YORK, COMMERCIAL COURT, BELFAST

START TIME: 12 NOON, (2HR), FINISHING AT BLACK BOX

Belfast is a weird, passionate, messed up place. The legacy of our conflict is about more than people, it’s about place. It’s about how the people of Belfast navigate this divided city, and how we build shared spaces for people of all backgrounds to co-exist.

If you spend any time in Belfast you’ll know that it’s walls are covered in art. Often this art has been used to mark territory for one side or the other but recently, alongside this, something transformative has been bubbling. Street artists from across the globe have joined a new breed of Belfast based street artists to leave their mark on the city, and in particular in the Cathedral Quarter where the annual festival Hit the North takes place.

As curators of this festival Seedhead Arts know the artists, the stories, and perhaps most importantly the need to forge a new narrative for Belfast. Our Street Art Walking Tour forms part of that narrative. This art speaks of love, of laughter, of anger, of beauty and of defiance but most of all it speaks of Belfast and the place that it’s becoming.

Join us for a gently paced, two hour walk around the ever changing face of Belfast Street art every Sunday at noon, leaving from the red benches on Commercial Court (beside the Duke of York)

Cost £10 pp
