Spotlight on Belfast – City of Music & Joy

Belfast City, Northern Ireland's progressive capital, developed as a great port and industrial centre during the 18th and 19th centuries. Built around the point where the River Lagan enters Lough Neagh in the south of County Armagh, the once troubled city has a rich history and a promising future. In November 2021, Belfast was awarded prestigious UNESCO City of Music status, while the Array Collective, a Belfast-based group of artists and activists, won the 2021 Turner Prize.
