Rebranded: Refugees Welcome t-shirt challenge

A year ago, Refugees Welcome Northern Ireland joined forces with Belfast Design Week for the Refugees Welcome T-Shirt Challenge.

The brief for up-and-coming designers – to design t-shirts that communicated messages of welcome and inclusion.

See the results at BDW18 – with those chosen for print displayed in the Black Box’s Green Room from November 5-30th 2018.

About Refugees Welcome Northern Ireland

Refugees Welcome is a grassroots, volunteer-led organisation that aims to make refugees and aslyum seekers welcome in N. Ireland.

Outburst Festival- Exhibition: Outlaws
Nov 8 @ 6:00 pm – Dec 2 @ 7:00 pm

OUTLAWS
Launch Nov. 8th 6pm
Black Box Green Room
FREE Throughout festival

We are thrilled to mark the launch of OUTLAWS – a new, ongoing collaborative illustration and storytelling project between Outburst Arts and illustrators Mel Carroll (founder and director of UsFolk illustration agency in Belfast) and Jamie Beard. Both artists are Outburst alumni, having previously been behind Outburst Queer Arts Festival projects like Outburst: Illustrated (2017, collective project as UsFolk) and Drawing Home (2016, Jamie Beard).

OUTLAWS is in development as a visual queer history of the gay male experience in Northern Ireland throughout the mid to late 20th century.
Honing in on the themes and issues at the heart of this lived experience, and focusing closely on the 1970’s where one might say such narratives find their epicentre, Mel and Jamie are inviting anyone with a story to tell to come and be a part of this unique new project as they aim to illustrate what is often a hidden history in Northern Ireland, amplifying voices visually with raw honesty and heart.

Join us as we launch OUTLAWS with a taster illustration exhibition that offers a glimpse of what you can expect from this project, as well as a chance to get involved.

Exhibition- Janet Morris
Dec 6 @ 6:00 pm – Dec 31 @ 7:00 pm

Janet Morris examines the transient nature and ambiguity of memories and motherhood within the domestic environment through painting, drawing and collaging. By featuring the home she deals with the notions of place as a source of belonging, protection as well as imprisonment. Morris intends to raise the ghosts of memory and bring to light the hidden and repressed within a poignant survival.
