Household Festival 2013

Contemporary Art

Domestic Spaces

Ormeau Road

23 – 25 August 2013

Based on the success of Household Festival 2012, Household Collective again organised Household Festival on and around the Ormeau Road area in South from Friday the 23rd until Sunday the 25th of August, 2013.x

In 2013, the collective worked in partnership with PS² Gallery, a Belfast city centre organisation whose focus is on urban intervention and social interaction by artists and cultural practitioners, architects, multidisciplinary groups and theorists.

Household Festival is an event that encourages audiences to re-negotiate the way in which they view and interact with art in the city. It offers an opportunity to experience new work in an unrestrictive and non-commercial context by inviting members of the public into artists’ homes.

There is a large concentration of creative professionals living in South Belfast, who for the duration of the festival, will open up their households to showcase a variety of work, from fine art, performance and installation to live music, talks and discussions.

The festival involved residents of over 40 houses and venues on and around the Ormeau Road and over 100 artists and creative professionals from across the city.
