The Crescent Arts Centre is a neutral space in the heart of South Belfast, which offers a wide variety of classes and activities for all ages, areas and backgrounds to enjoy all manner of artistic activity.

The Centre has a long and respected tradition in Outreach and Education having recently been chosen by Belfast City Council as an example of best practice for a European delegation from Euro Cities Framework.

Our Community Outreach and Education Programme has developed and grown, embracing new arts and cultural developments and creating new partnerships enabling our large bank of professional tutors to work with all ages and ranges of ability in all areas of the city.

The department aims to differentiate itself from other arts organisations by providing activities that are free at the point of delivery and focuses on those who encounter barriers to accessing arts provision (regardless of age, gender ability, ethnicity, socio economic background and geographic background.).

Also included are people with various physical and mental disabilities. Activities include dance and movement, music, visual arts, verbal arts and drama/theatre. 

For further information about our Outreach and Education programme, contact our Outreach & education officer Ann Feely at outreach@crescentarts.org.

Translation and the Actor

The Crescent Arts Centre

Classic plays evolve all the time through new translations. Actors, if given a good, 'speakable' translation, may gain access to a play or writer, they may not otherwise have been able to approach. The choices made by an acting company or their director as to what translation to use, will influence the style and the impact of their production. This workshop will focus on differing translations of Lorca, Chekhov and Greek Tragedy. 10% discount when you book any 3 of Rosie Pelan’s workshops.
