Now that Papergirl Belfast has completely wrapped, my focus is firmly on my next event, Culture Night Belfast. As I’ve mentioned before, my plan for the even will be a large-scale illustration combining the goddess of growth, Maia, and Belfast’s Edwardian Baroque architecture.
Today we had the launch event for the Culture Night Belfast programme. Not only were we able to get our hands on the programme and have a good peruse to see what else was in the plans for the 19th September, but we were treated to coffee, tea, biscuits and soups as well as screen-prints and some live street art. It was great to meet some of the other people involved with the event, and I think helped to get everyone excited for Culture Night.
The listing for my installation is also online. I will be based just off Waring Street (beside Premier Inn). So please come down and visit me there, and take a photo with Maia. I’m currently developing a website where any photos and tweets shared on social media with the hashtag #maia_cnb14 will be displayed in order to collate all the photographs of the piece. So, if you take a photo, please use the hashtag so I can see it!
And keep an eye out here, and on my Instagram, Twitter and Facebook accounts over the next three weeks if you want to see little glimpses of the final illustration before the actual event, when the whole piece will be revealed!
