BIFPA 15′ Belfast International Festival of Performance Art

The University of Ulster Art and Design Festival 2015 

The busy week of events generates a special vitality throughout the campus and its array of internationally renowned guests bring a unique opportunity for the public and students alike to sample the very best in creativity and innovation.

Ulster University has historically been the principal source for new creative talent in Northern Ireland. It continues to fulfill this increasingly important role and I am delighted that the stature of the Festival has grown in keeping with our position as a leading player in contemporary arts.
