Exhibition Opening: Natural ConnectionsEvents
About The Event
Belfast Exposed invites you to the exhibition opening of 'Natural Connections', in the Archive Gallery, on Thursday 17th June, 10am-12pm
The ‘Natural Connections’ exhibition showcases the 60 shortlisted winners of the ‘Natural Connections’ competition that took place earlier in the year. The photography competition, in partnership with Translink, aimed to capture the 'Natural Connections' which have sustained, surrounded, supported and encouraged people and communities since 23 March 2020, the first day of lockdown last year.
“With nearly fourteen hundred photographs submitted from all over Northern Ireland to the 'Natural Connections competition', Belfast Exposed are overjoyed by the public’s response highlighting their love of all things natural and how engaging with it can support our well-being. The quality of the submissions made for a very difficult selection to edit the shortlisted artists and eventual winner. The partnership with Translink and support from Arts & Business have been an enriching process for us as an arts organisation, and we are grateful for the support of Heather McLachlan (Director for Northern Ireland, National Trust) and Professor Siobhan O’Neill (Interim Mental Health Champion).” - Deirdre Robb, CEO, Belfast Exposed.
