The Programme

Our ambitious programme will give people the opportunity to celebrate our city in new and exciting ways. Together we want to imagine, dream and invent; to speculate and investigate; to learn and experiment; to imagine a new future, new spaces, a new balance with nature, new stories and new experiences.

Bank of Ideas

The Bank of Ideas is a new initiative by Belfast 2024 that enables the people of Belfast to propose and collectively decide on creative projects for our city.

Now it’s time to cast your votes and choose what you want to fund in your area! Come on down to the Voting Day in Belfast City Hall, any time from 2pm - 5pm.
