2 Royal Avenue


Interactive conversation on sustainability with VACAN in 2 Royal Avenue.

As part of the first NI 30 Under 30 Climate Change-Makers Cohort, VACAN are setting out to create a campaign for conversation about how Belfast should look in the future.

We want to know how unproductive spaces and social deprivation may be affecting your mental health.

Over 20% of ground floor buildings in Belfast's centre lie vacant! We want to hear your views on vacant spaces and discuss how these places can be transformed, from an old shopping centre to a community hub, or from a past industrial site to a rewilded woodland or community garden.

Come for a chat, enjoy some complimentary tea/coffee provided by the Yallaa café in 2 Royal Avenue and work alongside our zine artist to create your vision for a sustainable, green and vibrant Belfast.

You will also be able to enjoy some peace and quiet in our temporary garden - have a mindful moment to recharge between having some inspiring conversations with our other exhibitors.
