    Following the launch in 2015 of Belfast Strategic Partnership’s “Belfast a Learning
    City” and the Learning Charter for Belfast, BSP is now calling for organisations in the city to contribute to Belfast’s first Festival of Learning in 2016. This unique festival aims to engage Belfast citizens in learning, and inspire interest and enjoyment, through a week long programme of interactive learning events and workshops.

    During the week of 7th- 13th March 2016 we are asking organisations to showcase a diverse range of learning opportunities in our city for people of all ages, all backgrounds and all locations. These may be already planned or you could plan one specifically for the Festival. We particularly hope to showcase events that encourage the participation of groups and individuals who have experienced barriers in accessing learning opportunities.

    Submit an idea for an event!
    We want to enable as wide a range of organisations as possible to contribute to shaping the programme, and meeting the different needs of learners in the city, by directly creating and delivering events. We will look at every idea submitted with a view to endorsing it under the Festival of Learning, and we will co-ordinate and promote a citywide programme of events for the Festival.

    All you have to do is complete the attached Event Submission Form and send us
    your ideas as soon as possible – but the final deadline will be 15th January 2016.
