Culture Night 2021
16 September @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Culture Night / Oíche Chultúir celebrates culture, creativity and the arts and seeks to actively promote the belief that this rich and varied culture is alive, treasured and nurtured in people’s lives, today and every day.
For 2021 Culture Night Belfast is centred on Writer’s Square, which will be transformed into a monumental, immersive cultural experience running from Friday September 17 to Sunday September 19. In addition, an intriguing interactive trail will help visitors to reconnect with, and explore the rich artistic environment of the Cathedral Quarter
The Ogham Grove invites the public to explore our relationship with our native woodland and environment through a totally innovative and spectacular artwork. Taking inspiration from the Celtic Ogham Tree Alphabet a monumental, immersive sculpture will be created within Writer’s Square as the centre piece to a trail of cryptic markers distributed throughout the Cathedral Quarter. Using QR codes linked to these inscriptions participants will be able to divine their own way through the Cathedral Quarter attempting to crack the secret code and discovering the rich cultural offering of Belfast’s Cathedral Quarter along the way. The work can be explored both throughout the day or in the evening and will run from Friday 17th to Sunday 19th September to engage with the maximum number of visitors in a safe and socially distanced way.
Culture Night Derry invites visitors to COME TOGETHER AGAIN with a diverse programme running through the afternoon and evening on Friday 17 September.
