which will produce a short film to highlight the ‘energy of our city and the
diversity of its people, creating a real sense of civic pride.’

Lord Mayor of Belfast, Councillor Deirdre Hargey, said: “This is a really fun project and a great
opportunity for people from right across Belfast to be part of – we’ll even
throw in a free lunch.

under wraps until Culture Night, but it will be a fantastic experience for
those taking part and a real talking point.”

city and I’m really excited to see the finished project, which will be shown as
part of Culture Night in September.”
