This website will be the hub for all events past and present within this 4 year plan. We'll be showing you photos, videos, press releases, testimonials and so much more from every workshop, showcase event and festivals that have happened, are in the making and an insight into the bigger things which lie ahead.

There's already a huge buzz and even more excitement for what lies join us on this unique, wonderful journey! We invite and welcome you! There are other WOMAD websites all over the world - from the UK to New Zealand. If you are not familiar with who and what WOMAD is - you soon will and you'll be stunned at what an amazing concept it is! You can follow @WOMADBelfast on Twitter - which links in with all tweets within the WOMAD stratosphere!

WOMAD have found an excellent partner in Beyond Skin to work with us in delivering our shared goals of using the Arts to challenge children and young people's prejudices and unlocking the creative spark within. Understanding the world as a single global community has never been more important than it is now, wherever you are. WOMAD looks forward to this being the start of a long term partnership in Belfast leading to a festival event in the near future.” Chris Smith, WOMAD Director
