The Arts and Culture Society UUSU Present;

Collective Memories’, An Arts and Culture

Society Member’s Exhibition


Our winter exhibition is here! Join us for the launch on the 1st of December (6pm-9pm), in association with Belfast Late Night Art, at the Engine Room Gallery, where you will get the chance to meet some of the selected artists. The exhibition will be open to the public from the 1st to the 17th of December, in the run up to Christmas (excluding Sundays).

The Arts and Culture Society, based in the Ulster University’s Students’ Union, was established to support the work of budding artists studying at The Belfast School of Art. The majority of the artwork will be for sale at competitive prices, showcasing a wide range of high quality pieces across various disciplines, both contemporary and traditional.

We are excited to be part of the growing creative hub at 5 Donegall Square South, Belfast BT1, with The Royal Ulster Academy and The Engine Room Gallery also launching temporary exhibitions on site on the 1st Dec. 

So if you are in the market for a unique Christmas gift, and would like to see some budding new artistic talent, we highly recommend you come along. All welcome!

Refreshments will be provided on the night. We look forward to seeing you there!

Some Background

The Arts and Culture Society was established in September 2014, as an independent art collective within the Ulster University’s Students’ Union, Belfast campus. The society aims to enrich student’s experience of the arts, and support the development of their career, by delivering an insightful programme of artist talks, art workshops, field trips and professional practice opportunities, introducing them to the various platforms and outlets currently operating within the Belfast art scene.

The current directors of Arts and Culture, Cathy Scullion, Marta Dyczkowska and Jessica Snoddy, are dedicated practitioners of the arts, operating as both visual artists and curators. They look to celebrate the diversity of the arts by bringing people together under the banner of Arts and Culture, and believe that peer support through collaboration is the most successful approach to a career in the arts.

Operating under the Students’ Union, Ulster University, the society relies on the Students’ Union’s backing and public fundraising for financial support. In the first two academic years alone the society won two Gold Awards under the UUSU’s STAMPS programme, with it’s directors being awarded individual recognitions of their contributions to the betterment of student life on campus, and their community engagement further afield.
