It’s just over a month until the Land of Giants event on the Titanic Slipways and once again Belfast will be holding a world class event. It’s going to be the largest outdoor arts event ever staged in Ireland…..so it’s a Giant deal, and we can’t wait to get onto the Slipways to see it on the 30th June.
This Giant night out is bringing £750,000 of funding from Legacy Trust UK into Northern Ireland, and ensures the development of the outdoor arts and events sectors by making local artists, suppliers and up-and-coming production professionals central to the delivery of the epic event. Legacy Trust UK is an independent charity creating a lasting impact from the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games by funding ideas and local talent to inspire creativity across the UK.
In addition to providing employment for arts and events professionals and local suppliers the project will deliver eighteen internships in areas ranging from sound and lighting design to stage management and communications. Essentially it’s providing a lot of training and development for everyone involved in the preparations for this Giant night out.
As well as being the largest outdoor Arts event in Ireland, the Land of Giants is also one of the largest events of the London 2012 UK wide festival so it’s sure to give our tourism a big boost again. It really is our year!
