A new face for Belfast on the old face of the city. “Wish” by Jorge Rodríguez (@BelfastFestival) (@TitanicBelfast)

Wish2_2x1-748x374

A new face for Belfast on the old face of the city.  Is this just wishful thinking or a genuine hope for a brighter future for all of us who share this land?


A first for the UK and Ireland, a large scale portrait with a gaze towards the future will be created by internationally acclaimed artist Jorge Rodríguez-Gerada. Making history with local volunteers and community groups, the biggest spectacle of land art to be seen in Belfast to date will evolve at the Titanic Quarter, questioning who we want to be, rather than who we currently are.

‘Wish’  can be viewed once the Festival opens by members of the public from high up on one of the adjacent buildings on specially escorted tours as well as walking through the art itself. Visitors flying in and out of George Best Belfast City Airport will get a bird’s eye view of this transformative contemporary art installation.

Venue: Titanic Quarter (in front of Titanic Belfast)
