The Golden Thread Gallery is preparing to move to our new home in Belfast city centre with bespoke gallery spaces for our exhibitions and a participation and engagement hub (supported by our Calouste Gulbenkian Civic Arts Organisation of the Year runner’s up win and Ampersand Foundation) for the vital work that we do connecting communities to culture and arts.

This wonderful new space has opened up opportunities for us to expand and grow, but it has also reminded us of our past, our successes, and what we’ve already achieved. As we await our new premises, we want to take this time to reflect on what we have accomplished from our first exhibition at Brookfield Mill, to our fifteen years at Great Patrick Street and to share these successes with audiences.

A selection of artists were asked to respond to their past encounters with GTG and provide a small work that can be part of a touring exhibition. Golden Thread Gallery has a rich history of delivering diverse artistic programming. From the very beginning, we have worked to create links with our local communities and we want to celebrate this by using local libraries and public space on a route down from North Belfast to our future new home on Queen Street.

Work exhibited in “How We Got To…” will then enter our permanent collection, a key part of our future growth.
