KidsSpace Hits Buoys Park for Culture Night Belfast

KidsSpace returned once again to Culture Night Belfast on Friday 19 September.

Since 2011, KidsSpace events have transformed city spaces including St Anne’s Square; Buoys Park; Writers Square; Belfast City Hall; Urban Soul Cafe and an unused unit in CastleCourt Shopping Centre into welcoming spaces for families and children.

The event consists of 3 main themes:

  • Creative Space – facilitated by community artists
  • Active Space – facilitated by sports/dance coaches
  • Free Space – where children are encouraged to play and use the space freely, using large play equipment and games such as giant Connect 4 and Jenga

This year’s event more than lived up to expectations as the busiest and most popular yet. Views and feedback have been collected through art based evaluation exercises, highlighting the increasing demand for family activity in Belfast City Centre.
