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 asked what they want to be when they are older, and in the context of Portview what might their future workspace look like? We asked them to draw their ideas on paper and in VR and had everything from swimming pools to football pitches, trampolines and gaming spaces.
