EVENTS & PROMOTION: Blick Shared Studios


Launched in 2014

We set up The Design Salon in 2014 as a community for designers to connect and collaborate on projects together.

Our first project was the Another Belfast Map highlighting some of the best “things to see and do,” “shopping and supplies” and “places to eat and drink.” The map was devised by the community and designed by Two Digs Studio. The map was crowdfunded on Go Fund Me and distributed across Belfast and in the venues featured.

Our second project was Belfast Design Week which is in its 4th year in 2018.

Alongside the projects we have run a series of events including design thinking sessions, networking sessions and more recently “Quarterly” - a series of talks on a theme with refreshments kindly supplied by Cubist Coffee. The topics we have covered at Quarterly so far have been “Living” by The Holding Project’s Derv Heaney and “Boundaries by photographer Joe Laverty.
