Stendhal is very proud to be one of the biggest showcases for up and coming artists of all descriptions in Northern Ireland. The arts are deeply engrained within the heart of Stendhal Festival where we embrace all things creative. Not only do we showcase the performing arts, we passionately support traditional, contemporary and modern art in all its guises. We showcase all types of artistic endeavour from painting to sculpture, crafts to crochet.
We have several areas on site that focus solely on the arts, be it our art gallery or Annan’s Arch, an amazing space that combines natural artworks, recycled artwork and Irish myths and legends. We are the only Festival in the country that also allows our artists to sell their work on site with a 0% commission.
