This is your chance to shape the future of this part of Belfast. Belfast City Council staff are coming along to listen to your ideas for whole site including the public areas along the river as part of the public consultation for the East Bank, which closes at the end of September.

We're working with Adam Turkington from Seedhead Arts to make the event really engaging and inspiring, a real idea generator. We want people to get big ideas about how the East Bank of the Lagan could be.

We will be sharing some brilliant public space ideas from other cities, brainstorming, exploring what young people in Belfast want and need in their public spaces and illustrating our ideas on paper. We'll combine all of these plans and record the evening's discussions and ideas and present them to the council to add in to the Belfast City Council planning consultation. As the event is at dinnertime, we'll also provide pizza and beverages. We are limited to 50 tickets. please book here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/urban-youth-almanac-tickets-37528309183
