Get involved!

The Duncairn is a vibrant welcoming community arts hub proudly based in north Belfast. We celebrate our fifth birthday in 2019, and over those years The Duncairn has had a remarkable and mounting impact on the arts and culture scene throughout the city, establishing itself and north Belfast as a premium cultural destination, not just among the local community but also across Belfast and beyond. 

On visiting, it doesn’t take long to suss that this former Presbyterian church is not just one of the most beautiful venues in Belfast, it is also hosting work of real importance in offering access to the arts. Run by a tight team of staff and volunteers, and with a focus on community, The Duncairn offers classes, workshops, a full music programme, café, creche and much more, ensuring that people of various interests and all ages are catered for.

It has become obvious though that our team simply isn’t big enough to deal with the growing interest in The Duncairn arts programme, so we are starting a volunteer recruitment drive for people who would be interested in joining us. Please have a look at the volunteer role descriptions on our website and download an application form.  Or get in touch if you would like to find out more. Hopefully we’ll hear from you soon!
