Portview trade centre, formerly a linen mill, is now home to a wide range of exciting and diverse businesses in East Belfast. Tasked with programming the two empty top floors and roof, in this project we are looking at up-skilling and alternative education, social tenancy, preserving heritage, and tourism and economy.

Saturday 03 august 2019 - eastside fun day

On Saturday the USI team headed down to Eastside partnership to host a VR workshop with the local community. We asked kids what they want to be in the future, and in the context of Portview what might their future workspace look like? They illustrated ideas ranging from swimming pools to football pitches in VR and on paper.
