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.

Belfast International Arts Festival returns for our 58th edition, from Monday 12 October  to Sunday 1 November, with a programme of inspirational events that seeks to respond creatively to the current pandemic. The 2020 edition will primarily be hosted online.

The team are working remotely from our respective homes for the foreseeable future and can be reached by email.

Stay safe, keep well and we look forward to welcoming you to #BIAF20
