We had a blast launching TAKEOFF with #NORTHBELFASTCreatives in June. 

TAKEOFF is a project sponsored by George Best Belfast City Airport that invites young people to find what they love to do and do it for life!

Young people from Belfast came together to get involved in offering out what they do in the BT13, BT14 and BT15 areas. We had some fantastic ideas including; showcases and exhibitions of local talent, dance competitions, singing classes, photography events, drama fun days, creative workshops for the elderly, a club orchestra and a North Belfast Fleadh! 

We also have some very exciting plans underway to put Belfast on the music scene map.

With these ideas and events, we hope to ultimately challenge and solve local issues and come together creatively to share what we love to do! 

We're currently working with Ignition Belfast to develop a website for this very exciting project, so keep your eyes and ears peeled for what's to come next in North Belfast...
