We have a number of events planned for this year’s Creative Peninsula, including our 2 exhibitions, a market stall and daily artist demos and talks. 

Congratulations to our very own Steph Harrison, who was chosen as this year’s Creative Peninsula artist, who’s work is featured in the promotional material for the festival circulating nationwide. 

Now in its 20th year, this thriving annual event is back for 2021! 

The 2021 programme sees a slightly reduced offering of in-person activity and the introduction of additional virtual opportunities.

You will find annual favourites including Creative Peninsula in the Square on Friday 30 July, Open Studios, Exhibitions, Workshops and Demonstrations all taking place throughout the beautiful and picturesque Ards and North Down Borough.

The region is well known for its abundance of artists and makers and during the Creative Peninsula event visitors have the opportunity to view work, purchase or commission a unique piece of art or try their hand in one of the many workshops.

With Heart and Hand

In spring 2021, Northern Ireland Screen’s Digital Film Archive commissioned six artists from Seacourt Print Workshop in Bangor to make a creative response to With Heart and Hand, a UTV programme made in 1966 to commemorate the Battle of the Somme.
