‘Where Do We Live’ Drawing Workshop

June 8th — August 8th, 2021

With James Ashe

James Ashe invites you to take part in a series of artist-led workshops that will be an expansion of his ‘Where Do We Live’ map project exploring the hidden statues and sculptures in Belfast City. The workshops will begin with exploring the Strand Arts Centre and don’t worry we’ll provide the creative materials!

In these workshops we will look at the built environment and explore the history of the buildings in Belfast. Participants will be encouraged to take photos to inspire their drawings and collect their own images of statues to create their very own map as part of this project.
‘Where Do We Live’ is a free workshop and part of Accessing Architecture: Disability and Belfast’s Built Heritage by the University of Atypical is funded by National Lottery Heritage Fund Northern Ireland. The project researches the history of the disabled community in Belfast through the city’s built, industrial and cultural environments.

Workshops will be in person – Covid regulations permitting. Workshops will take place once a week for 8 weeks.
Communication and project updates will be via a Facebook group page –
