Belfast is about to be taken over by Young At Art, a non-profit organisation for children’s arts. For a week, they’re hosting an international festival, with performers from over 10 countries. There will be free activities for children of all ages in every nook and cranny of the city. Some of the fun includes: a creative playgroup for under-4s in a shopping centre; the Book Clinic, where book doctors dispense magic through stories; dance performances from De Stilte; a musical adaptation of Roald Dahl’s The Three Little Pigs; Roddy Doyle and this year’s Waterstone’s Prize Winner Louise O’Neill, and installations about art and technology. (Plus, brilliantly, The Office of Important Art, for drop-in bursts of artistic expression.) There are also seminars for adults, and as the festival celebrates its 17th year, a hope from the organisers that there will be enough funding for next year. A feast of creativity, not to be missed.
