9 December 2017

Participants from our Arts for Enterprise Programme will be selling their festive arts and crafts at the Arc Christmas Craft Fair.

The Arts for Enterprise Programme began in September and participants have been diligently working at making Christmas decorations to sell at craft fairs.  Not only have they developed the skills for creating high quality arts and crafts, but they have also acquired enterpreneurial skills, marketing and PR abilities as well as gaining workplace skills in a supportive team environment.
The participants are very excited to showcase their creations and sell to the public.  So if you are free on Saturday 9th December, we would love to see as many of you there to support the Arts for Enterprise team at the ARC Centre (7 Donegall Street Place, Belfast).
