Ulster Festival of Art and Design

WELCOME to the inaugural Ulster Festival of Art & Design,

supported by Carson McDowell. The idea of a Festival came about through the success of our annual End of Year Show when our graduates present their work in a campus-wide exhibition. This event is a highpoint in the visual arts calendar and it felt like a natural progression to develop it with a range of complementary activity.

All the events in the Festival are linked to the work of the Faculty of Art, Design and the Built Environment. They reflect the breadth of its disciplines and put a spotlight on the University of Ulster’s position as a centre of creative excellence in Ireland.
