Young at Art is Northern Ireland's leading children's arts provider. Established in 1998 as the creator of the region's first international arts festival for children and young people, the Belfast Children's Festival. Since 1998 over 371,000 children and adults have attended or participated in a Young at Art activity in Northern Ireland. It is dedicated to making the arts central to how our children and young people grow as part of the wider society. Between each festival, Young at Art work year round to plan the festival programme, develop projects with artists, children and other organisations, work with schools and communities on education programmes and raise funds to put on activities that are accessible and affordable to all. The next Belfast Children's Festival runs from 9 - 14 March 2018, with a programme including theatre, dance, music and visual arts, with activities curated for newborns up to early teens.
