Festival programming and projects

The Belfast Children's Festival is a curated festival, and as such doesn't receive submissions. However, our Director travels to festivals in Europe, although her travel budget is limited, so if you are performing at a festival do let us know and we will keep an eye out for your work. 

If you have an idea or recommendation for a commission, project or event and would like to discuss it, please contact us. Bear in mind that all work requires advance planning and fundraising and not everything can be acted on immediately.


If you are interested in joining Young at Art as a freelance artist, or event facilitation, please contact us. If you are offered work, you will be required to comply with child protection procedures and provide references, etc.
