The East Belfast A/R Story project has been led and coordinated by East Belfast Enterprise, with technical support and content creation provided by Creative Conspiracy and a range of community partners and businesses within East Belfast.
East Belfast Enterprise, a Charity and Social Enterprise, are the Local Enterprise Agency for the area whose mission is to “To inspire and nurture entrepreneurs to make a positive difference in East Belfast” They deliver on this mission via a range of business support initiatives, such as this project, to enable current and future entrepreneurs and social enterprises in the area. They also provide workspace across two sites via co-working, serviced offices and industrial workshops.
Creative Conspiracy is a local company based close to the area and who have a passion for all things technology driven have come on board to help provide the output of the vision of the local community.
Furthermore, the project would not have gotten to this stage without the support of the East Belfast community who helped develop and contribute to the content within the portal. Thanks go to our partners including Aunt Sandra’s Candy Factory, Ballymac Friendship Centre, Short Strand Community Centre, Eastside Visitor Centre, Andy Tyrie Interpretive Centre and local tour guide Laura Spence.
