Moon Bounce! Funded by Grow Wild 2019!

Come along to The Green Room to view an exhibition of Moon Bounce! Our Moon Base group members took part in a series of environmental workshops, creating Eco-art and grew their own Mushrooms as part of this project! The grand finale was ‘Moon Bounce’ – the group went down to Clandeboye Estate in Bangor and planted wild flower seeds, learnt to make potato bread on a campfire, played music, had a dance workshop with Charmaine McMeekin and got on down to some Moon Beats provided by our Black Moon DJ’s! The wild flowers have now grown into a beautiful wild flower meadow and we will be exhibiting photographs mapping out the project from start to finish.

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)

Exhibition-Lauren O’Hara
Oct 3 @ 6:00 pm – Nov 3 @ 6:00 pm

My Art work is heavily based on my personal interests of historical events of the Second World War (1939-1945) and post-world war (1960’s/1970’s). This research into history has allowed me to create art work that reflects the vast differences and similarities between the two pivotal points in history and how many lives around the world were changed forever. These points in time change between the tragic event of the holocaust, including deeds of mass genocide amongst the Jewish religion by the Nazi’s and the new age of economy, technology, technicolour, free love and human rights within the post-World War Two generation.

I am a mixed media artist and I like to create artwork through many different areas including, Painting, Screen Print, collage, Installation/performance, Photography and Video work.

Previously my pieces of art were created aim to look at the meaning and emotion behind those who are depicted, exploring their story and the impact on loved ones who still deal with these horrific memories of times gone by. However, my new body of work has been the complete opposite, creating imagery that holds no narrative or meaning in representation of forgotten memories that were once so important and experienced/ captured through the eye of a lens. My aim throughout my art in any media is to make the viewer look twice. I don’t purposely set out to take each piece of research or photo and make it look very dramatic, emotional, creepy, political or morbid. When I recreate these images, I feel that unknowingly my own underlying emotions or lack of emotion towards the images and background stories from research effects my creativity and mood.

Personally, I believe that when an artist makes a lovely painting, for example (still life or realism), this does not necessarily mean that it is correct, and seen as the only way to approach painting when wanting to become a skilled artist. I believe that there is no right or wrong when it comes to art.

Real Sketchy
Oct 3 @ 9:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Since November 2012 Seedhead Arts has been running and developing Real Sketchy, a open live sketching event taking place in a bar environment. Over the years it’s developed from something that was largely populated by artists to being somewhere that anyone can have a wee sketch and a laugh over a few pints.

Although inspired by the spirit of Street Art, we’re really interested in the cross-pollenisation of different disciplines like comic, illustration, design, etc and how this plays out in a live environment, in a crowd of people with a wide range of skills and backgrounds. Plus beer. And music.

Thanks to sponsorship from Ink Monkey in North Street we are now able to provide pens, pencils and paper for everyone.

The Time is Now // Life After University
Oct 8 @ 6:30 pm

The Time is Now’ is turning into a platform where we gather together to encourage men and women to challenge themselves, be vulnerable in a space by sharing experiences within their industries and give an insight into the beginning stages of their career.

It is an ongoing project that focuses on creative people that are at the beginning and middle stages of their career, and creating a community of people that can share their stories and connect to other people that are going through the same thing.

Often we see people in the media that have “made it” but never show the process of how they got there. We aim to create a platform where people can share authentic stories, speak on their process and encourage people that they are not alone.

In this panel talk, we are focusing on the experience of people that have recently left university or will shortly leave university. Breaking down what that looks like, sharing the trials and tribulations of how hard it can be and showing different cases of how people take on unpredicted routes from their chosen discipline.

This is open to everyone because we know that everyone can relate to the unpredicted opportunities that may take us away from the plan in our head. We will be asking about the process of how people got to where they are now in the starting & middle part of their journey.

If you feel that you need encouragement, or just to hear someone else saying that they don’t know what they are doing, or life has taken them down a different planned path, this is the event for you.

We never come at an event saying that we know the answers, we simply step back and listen to people’s stories and hope that it inspires someone to make a start to go for their dreams.
