Imagine! Belfast Festival of Ideas & Politics

We are a group of volunteers who run an annual festival each March involving talks, music, comedy, film, exhibitions, workshops etc. We were set up in 2014 to showcase new ideas on politics, culture and civic activism. Strictly non-partisan, we aim to entertain not pontificate! 

Our key objectives are to encourage the participation of under-represented groups in political/cultural discussion; to stimulate reflection and debate on difficult and controversial issues and to promote free speech. We invite people to suggest and run events every November. Subscribe to our ezine and follow us on social media to get involved and have some fun.
