We are delighted that we will be returning to the Skainos building for our second TEDx event on Friday, 6 December 2013. Registration for the event will open soon!

The Skainos Project is an urban regeneration project in inner East Belfast providing shared space for community transformation and renewal.

Growing out of the work of the East Belfast Mission (EBM) it brings together a range of strategic partnerships which will contribute to the holistic regeneration of one of the most economically and socially deprived communities in Northern Ireland.

Skainos gathers under one roof all aspects of the work undertaken by EBM including homelessness services, employability, social economy projects, youth work, family work, community development and peace building as well as a vibrant worshipping community. A range of partners will also share the space including Oaklee Housing AssociationBelfast Metropolitan College and Age NI.
