The Event

On 21 September Amazing the Space will bring together 3,500 young people from schools across Northern Ireland at the Eikon Exhibition Centre, Maze / Long Kesh to celebrate their role in peacebuilding. The event will include performances from local talent, as well as international contributions from across the globe, through a range of international partners including Generation Global, The Global Peace Foundation and The United Nations.

Alongside the main event at the Eikon Centre, ‘Amazing the Space’ has established a number of satellite venues across Northern Ireland enabling an additional 2,000 pupils to participate in local events, via live video streaming.

Organised to coincide with the UN International Day of Peace, this event will be an opportunity for our young people to share their vision for a peaceful society with young people living in other conflict areas around the world.

On 24 June, Amazing the Space was officially launched by deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness MLA and Jnr Minister Alastair Ross MLA. Read about it here.
