The Faculty is for people who want to keep learning. It’s a loose umbrella of events and courses for people who want to expand their horizons and learn new skills. Our new partnership with Blick Studios and Infinite Jest is only a few months old but most of our events are selling out. It seems that just because you’ve left school doesn’t mean you lot want to stop learning. We won’t give you a certificate or letters after your name but you will be better at something or know more about something and for most people that’s enough.
Are you a fan of the flourish, a sucker for sleight of hand or dazzled by the discovery of the disappeared?

Hit the North returns to Belfast on the 21 & 22 of September to transform the streets of the Cathedral Quarter once again.Hit the North Street Art Festival was established by Seedhead Arts and the Community Arts Partnership in 2013 as a response to vacant space along North Street. Now in it’s fifth year, with the support of Becks, Hit the North has become one of the biggest street art festivals in Ireland, and this year boasts an amazing line-up of artists from across Europe.
Since November 2012 Seedhead Arts has been running and developing Real Sketchy, a open live sketching event taking place in a bar environment. Over the years it’s developed from something that was largely populated by artists to being somewhere that anyone can have a wee sketch and a laugh over a few pints.
Seedhead Arts has 25 years of experience running events. In that time we’ve build up an unparalleled network of hugely talented artists and performers and an intimate understanding of how to utilise these skills to produce small and large scale impacts at all sorts of events.
Sometimes opportunities arise to be part of one off events. These can be as a result of us being asked to contribute to events but more often it's because we see the opportunity to do something interesting and we do it. Could be anything… watch this space...
With Yarn Forward, we are encouraging people to remember lost skills, or learn some new ones, and give their mental health a lift along the way. We have a regular Knit Night every month in the Community Arts Partnership’s coffee area, and are currently co-ordinating a community yarn bomb, The Big Woolly Wall, for Culture Night 2017.
We are also developing a series of workshops for groups that will introduce beginners to either knitting or crochet, working together to create a group project, or individual items.
