"How do we make cities more welcoming?" Evening conversation hosted by Belfast City Council

This evening conversation hosted by Belfast City Council officially welcomed the Festival to Belfast with inspiring stories, refreshments and a chance for all of our partners and festival hosts to meet and mingle and begin to meet the unusual suspects. We explored how we can make cities more welcoming. Speakers included Councillor Aileen Graham, Chair of City Growth and Regeneration Committee, Pádraig Ó Tuama, a renowned poet, theologian and peace worker at Corrymeela, Penny Travlou of University of Edinburgh and Co-Founder of the non-profit organisation Options FoodLab in Athens, and Mark Hackett, a Belfast-based architect and director of City Reparo.
