There ‘paint’ no mountain high enough with Victoria Square and Elmer’s Big Belfast Trail!

Victoria Square shopping centre is the latest local business to sign up as a Supporting Partner for Elmer’s Big Belfast Trail and they are going above and beyond to prove their commitment to the cause.  

The shopping centre recently hosted a unique artists space in the weeks leading up to trail. This was available for Elmer artists to use as a studio to design, create and paint their Elmer sculpture and could be viewed by the public to get a brief glimpse of some of the masterpieces being created in advance of the trail.  

Elmer’s Big Belfast Trail is set to be a huge success in Belfast in June, as a herd of uniquely-decorated Elmer sculptures – inspired by David McKee’s best-selling books, Elmer the Patchwork Elephant – will appear across the city for ten weeks. 

The family-friendly event, organised by NI Hospice in partnership with Wild in Art and Andersen Press, will be completely free for everyone to enjoy.

Mencap

BRINGING VIC-STORY-A SQUARE TO MENCAP NORTHERN IRELAND

The team behind Belfast’s most inviting retail destination is bringing a little bit of magic to one of Northern Ireland’s children charities this Autumn.

Mencap Northern Ireland’s Children’s Centre in South Belfast will benefit from a makeover designed by Victoria Square’s centre management team in conjunction with Rebel Events.

The project is the first stage of a longer-term community strategy for the shopping centre, which will work with local groups and organisations to create indoor and outdoor spaces their service uall with that recognisable Victoria Square flair.

Working in partnership with The Belfast Health and Social Care Trust, The Mencap Children’s Centre provides a unique specialist learning environment for children with a learning disability, providing support and advice to families.

The brand-new project dubbed ‘Vic-Story-A Square’ launched on the 1st September and will see a permanent fixture installed at the Children’s Centre featuring an enclosed outdoor reading and seating area, a bug hotel and bird bath, outdoor chalkboards, and an inverted fish tank – to be enjoyed by children aged 2-14.
It is hoped that the various elements included will encourage the children to connect more with nature and help develop their skills.

Michelle Greeves, Centre Manager at Victoria Square commented on the project saying, “We are delighted to team up with Mencap Northern Ireland to bring this exciting installation to the Children’s Centre. We haven’t been able to bring our much loved activations to the Centre this year given the current climate, therefore we thought we would bring Victoria Square out to the local community and create awesome spaces for people to enjoy. This particular installation is so important as it not only looks fantastic but it actually will help significantly to provide a sense of calm to the children who attend the Centre and assist in developing their sensory and communication skills in a therapeutic outdoor environment.”

Marian Nicholas, Honorary Life Member and Chairperson of Mencap Special Events Committee spoke about the installation saying “We are delighted that Victoria Square has chosen to partner up with Mencap on this project, the installation looks amazing and will undoubtedly provide hours of fun for the kids who attend the Children’s Centre as well as helping them communicate and engage with their surroundings.
“It will no doubt be a different kind of year for the children but hopefully the installation will help provide a sense of normality and relaxation for them and help develop their skills.” sers can enjoy –
