Welcome To The 4 Corners Festival
The 4 Corners Festival seeks to inspire people from across Belfast to transform it for the peace and wellbeing of all. It consists of innovative events designed to entice people out of their own ‘corners’ of the city and into new places where they will encounter new perspectives, new ideas, and new friends. We celebrate our city through music, prayer, storytelling, discussion and more.
This year’s theme OUR STORIES…Towards A Culture Of Hope is about inviting everyone to contribute their narratives, weaving a tapestry that reflects the essence of belonging and unity within the city’s diverse community.
