In 2009, in celebration of the London 2012 games, Legacy Trust UK challenged six arts organisations in Northern Ireland to develop a series of new community projects that would connect culture and sport. The result was the Connections programme. On Saturday September 1st, those groups will come together for the first time to showcase their achievements over the past three years, with a feast of carnival, film, dance, music and song.
Join us at Belfast city centre’s newest and most exciting arts venue, the MAC, for an inspiring day of free performances and workshops. Everyone is welcome but please book early to reserve your place at this extraordinary creative celebration!
Connections has been funded by Legacy Trust UK, creating a lasting impact from the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games by funding ideas and local talent to inspire creativity across the UK. The programme is managed by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland.
All events are FREE but booking is essential. To book tickets to performances please contact the MAC at www.themaclive.com by phone on 028 9023 5053 or in person at the MAC. 10 Exchange Street West. Belfast BT1 2NJ
