Welcome to Golden Thread Gallery, Northern Ireland’s leading international contemporary visual arts organisation
From its beginnings, in 1998, in a former linen mill on a contested ‘peace line’ in North Belfast, Golden Thread Gallery has delivered annual programmes of exhibitions and activities designed to make a real contribution to the visual arts and wider communities in Northern Ireland.

Now located in Belfast’s developing ‘sailor-town’ area, on the edge of the city centre, Golden Thread Gallery has grown a unique position in the region by simultaneously developing programs of contemporary art that reach local and international audiences.

The Golden Thread Gallery is a contemporary visual art gallery in Belfast.
Be at home with contemporary art.
