Event description
The StreetSpace workshop is back, this time in Sailortown.

About this event

After the success of the previous StreetSpace workshops in Belfast City Hall and abroad, we are delighted to repeat, focusing this time on the memorable and wonderful Sailortown neighbourhood. Our symposium in November hosted about 60 participants from different disciplines, backgrounds and parts of the world. We hope to welcome as many of them as possible in person and online in this two day workshop.

This workshop will reveal the complexity Sailortown. We will explore people's experiences, memories and histories and create maps and drawings to reflect these. We will also investigate the potential of these streets to provide fair, accessible and diverse places for people. This workshop is based on the one year live project carried out by students of the Masters of Architecture, in collaboration with Sailortown Regeneration, Department for Communities, Belfast City Council, Anthropology at QUB, the Sailortown community, the Heritage Hub and Household. We will develop a series of activities that will help us see the potential of new and existing buildings in Sailortown to provide significant and valuable spaces for the Sailortown community.

The workshop will be held in St Joseph’s Church, a landmark of Belfast’s histories and memories and a place brought back to life by Sailortown Regeneration.

Places are limited, but the event is free and open to all. RSVP is mandatory for catering purposes.
