IMAGINE! BETTER

The Imagine! festival takes place in Belfast every March and presents a unique way of imagining the future of this great city — and the wider world. We present high-quality showcases for the discussion of contemporary political and societal issues including new ideas on politics, culture and activism from some of the world’s leading contemporary thinkers. But it’s not all brain-melting policy discussions: there’s something for everyone in the form of exhibitions, humour, family events, music, theatre, tours, workshops and film and whatever else we can find to fire your imagination.

Outside of the main festival every March we also organise special events throughout the year — so keep checking back, or better still, join our mailing list!

2024 event tickets now available. most are free and going fast!
