Welcome to Belfast International Arts Festival

Our aim is a simple one; to create a genuinely civic event of contemporary arts and ideas of international appeal and stature. See About Us

Provisional dates for 2023 are 12-29 October, and we hope to share plans on special satellite events in Spring 2023.

The team are best reached by email  as we are in the office several days and working from home on other days. Stay safe, keep well and we look forward to welcoming you to #BIAF23
