Smashing Times are delighted and honoured to be long-listed for The Award for Civic Arts Organisations by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation (UK Branch), in partnership with King’s College London.

Artistic Director, Mary Moynihan said that to be long-listed is, “great recognition for the power of our work in Northern Ireland and the role that arts organisations can play in society, boldly reimagining our work to connect with communities  to promote the arts for equality, human rights and diversity.”

The Award seeks to highlight and celebrate civic arts organisations and their response to the pandemic, with funding and further support to continue their work and share learning. The Award will shine a spotlight on the vital role that arts organisations play in sustaining a thriving, creative, and connected society, particularly during challenging times.
