Beat Carnival Arts company - 18th April 2016
*

President Elect Colin McCarthy and David Boyd director of Beat Carnival


David Boyd is the Director of Beat Carnival, an independent Arts company which now operates from the Beat Carnival Centre in Millfield in Belfast.

As a graduate of the Art College with a keen interest in and involvement with youth groups, David's purpose was to develop creative talent in the community and to provide employment for artists.

He outlined how Beat Carnival developed into the vibrant organisation it is to-day, engaging people across communities and producing carnivals and large scale performances involving thousands of people such as the Belfast Carnival and the Lord Mayor's Parade.

He described how, through Beat Carnival, large numbers of all ages now participate in workshops and training programmes in a wide range of art forms including drumming, dance, costume design & construction and puppetry construction & operation. These are delivered by professional artists and craftsmen and women thus achieving his aim of developing skills and providing employment.
