17th – 31st May 2011

Explore a multi-layer, creative mapping installation at PLACE: an analysis of green space types across Belfast following a “green vein”. A unique installation by landscape architect Celia Spouncer is accompanied by an open invite to workshops investigating the “health” of green space in Belfast.

From 17th – 31st May, Celia will be making PLACE her base for green experiments and urban research, encompassing direct interventions like green roofs and window farms to discussions on the planning of green space. It promises to be an action-packed two weeks, and we hope you can make it to visit the Green Veins Laboratory or to one of the many public events planned almost every day at PLACE and venues all over Belfast. “Slow fast food” is promised! Check out the full programme below.

  1. Hi everyone at Lagan Permaculture.
    Looking forward to the planting on Saturday.
    Thanks for putting this on your website.
    Was at the Burren food Festival last weekend giving presentation about local food local economy and met the GIY Ireland staff and volunteers. They were keen to make contact with groups in NI. Have they contacted you yet?

      Hello Celia,
      it was lovely to enjoy Belfast’s pedestrian street surrounded by greenery during the Green Veins event at Place.
      We have had no contact from GIY or Burren Food festival yet!
