Public Art Showcase by Youth and Community of West Belfast

Upper Springfield Development Trust Arts Unit ran the Dreamscapes art project with groups throughout West Belfast. Trust artist Deborah Malcomson worked with Divis Youth, Upper Andersonstown Forum Adult Group and Youth Group and the Ulster Wildlife Trust.

The Project aimed to explore creative, aspirational responses to a rapidly changing urban environment through innovative approaches to participative arts. It provided a creative outlet through art workshops for people to reflect on changes in the environment and collectively express themselves through different forms of visual art.

Contributors include: Deirdre Mackel: Upper Springfield Development Trust Arts Unit, artist Deborah Malcomson, Paul Maskey MP, Odhrán Jude Carleton, Louise Walsh, Roisin Walsh, J P Walsh, Claire McConnell, and Lucille Coates: Ulster Wildlife Trust.

This project was funded by the National Lottery through the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and also funded by Department of Social Development’s Belfast Regeneration Office.
