Almanac: an annual publication that includes information such as weather forecasts, farmers’ planting dates, tide tables, and tabular information. Astronomical data and various statistics are found in almanacs, such as the times of the rising and setting of the sun and moon, eclipses, hours of full tide, church festivals, etc.
Ever feel like all the decisions about your city are being made behind closed doors?
Ever contribute to a consultation which didn’t ever seem to make any difference?
Ever wonder who decided it was OK to build that there or knock that down?
Ever feel like you wanted a new way to talk about Belfast and how we’re planning our future?
The CNB Almanac will be a new approach in public consultation. It’s an attempt to gather a creative guide for decision makers and disseminate the outputs, not via an ignored report, but to thousands of people via performances at Culture Night and associated digital content.
Each event will include five challenging, five minute presentations and then be opened up to everyone. We will take your ideas and dreams and turn them into a body of work that will help everyone to talk about and own the conversation about the future of our city.
Our three events will look at Belfast through the three lenses of Arts, Environment and Youth and ask how they can contribute to the city’s future.
