Vault Artist Studios is a group of artists working across many disciplines. We are visual artists, musicians, puppeteers, photographers, film-makers, bee-keepers and writers. We took over an old Ulster Bank in early 2017 knowing that we would only have the building for one year. The temporary lease gave us the motivation to make something different and exciting happen. Now we are growing…
Vault Artist Studios are a community driven, not for profit arts charity. Our mission is to provide affordable art studios for creatives working across a wide variety of art forms.
Hundreds of commercial and industrial buildings are vacant and decaying all over Belfast. Many long-term empty properties stay that way for years, even decades. We were established in 2017 to make use of these spaces and to provide a platform for artistic talent to flourish.
We strive for variety and diversity in our make up and see our multidisciplinary nature as our main strength in building a community. This enables us to transform neighbourhoods, increase accessibility to the arts, and enrich the local communities around us.
In a short period of time; Vault Artists studios have become a major contributor to the cultural identity of Belfast. Adding to the creative narrative of the city.
