Public Art and Sculpture Trail

Lisburn City Council's XPLORART Sculpture Trail is one of the most prestigious public arts projects ever undertaken in Northern Ireland and is the first public art programme to be implemented by Lisburn City Council. The programme illustrates the Council's proactive approach to the development of an integrated schedule of public art incentive schemes and commissions to enhance the visitor profile of Lisburn City.

XPLORART entails eight site specific sculptures at Lagan Valley Island co-funded by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland Lottery Fund. The trail is supplemented by exhibition spaces at ISLAND Arts Centre where temporary exhibitions are accommodated and with its remarkable collection of contemporary works of art, is a fine example ART PARTNERS of both urban and rural renewal.

This 25th anniversary tour will see Matthew Forsythe seamlessly shift through dozens of characters in the story. ‘Is it possible to change?’

In his mid–thirties, Kenneth McAllister is a clerk in the local welfare office. Kenneth is a Belfast Protestant who has followed all the rules. He loved who he was supposed to love.

He lived where he was expected to live. He fought who he was taught to fight.

That is, until one night –– a night in November –– when he did the most exciting, outrageous, crazy thing he’d ever done.

This is the stunning multi–award winning play from Marie Jones, writer of hit shows ‘Stones in his Pockets’ & ‘Christmas Eve Can Kill You.’

‘Funny, passionate and heartbreaking.’
