Untitled 14km. The setting is a museum gallery. In the centre, a human shaped figure appears like a sculpture, wearing a medieval style metal helmet and chainmail, over a gold foil cloak.

Established in 1962, the city’s longest-running international arts festival, reimagined and reborn as Belfast International Arts Festival (BIAF) in 2015, is celebrating 60 years with a new extended season of contemporary arts and cultural events.

For six decades the festival has ensured that the residents of Belfast alongside its international visitors have access to the best of world class artists and events from home and abroad.
