Opening Doors is an art and music project in collaboration with Mid and East Antrim Borough Council, Wall2Wall Music and Voluntary Arts Ireland to make new music and art with local people from Ballymena, Larne, Carrick and surrounding areas taking place between April and the Autumn of 2018.

What is involved?

This could be the most fun you have as a musician in a few days. From scratch with a group of musicians brought together from across the borough and across musical genre and tradition we will create music and song that will connect with and help inspire the new commission by Sarah Murphy and Colin Hassard to be performed to launch the Opening Doors arts installations in Autumn 2018.

Who is it for?

We are particularly interested in working with local music partner groups or organisations to help make this happen. If this is you then get in touch with Kevin Murphy [email protected]

Activities will be open to all aged 16 - 60+ in the Mid and East Antrim Borough Council area who play a musical instrument and/or sing. We welcome any genre of music and background. 

When does it happen and where?*

Once local partners are confirmed we will work together to finalise dates and venues for a series of workshops
