The Crescent Arts Centre is a neutral space in the heart of South Belfast, which offers a wide variety of classes and activities for all ages, areas and backgrounds to enjoy all manner of artistic activity.

The Centre has a long and respected tradition in Outreach and Education having recently been chosen by Belfast City Council as an example of best practice for a European delegation from Euro Cities Framework.

Our Community Outreach and Education Programme has developed and grown, embracing new arts and cultural developments and creating new partnerships enabling our large bank of professional tutors to work with all ages and ranges of ability in all areas of the city.

The department aims to differentiate itself from other arts organisations by providing activities that are free at the point of delivery and focuses on those who encounter barriers to accessing arts provision (regardless of age, gender ability, ethnicity, socio economic background and geographic background.).

Also included are people with various physical and mental disabilities. Activities include dance and movement, music, visual arts, verbal arts and drama/theatre. 

For further information about our Outreach and Education programme, contact our Outreach & education officer Ann Feely at [email protected]
