Situated in the former DeLorean factory premises, Studio 23, although established relatively recently, has become one of Belfast's most important artists resources. Mo McDevitt, the Studio’s manager, founded the studio starting from scratch. Today it houses photographers, ceramists, a contemporary jeweler and visual artists whether established or emerging. Mo describes the origins of the studio, her own arts background and the Studio's outreach projects with a local youth group.

The Studio’s current project is the documentation of an arranged marriage taking place in both Belfast and India.

Donnie Wright, photographer, Clinton Kirkpatrick, visual artist and Jill Graham, contemporary jeweler, give an insight into their work and their plans for the future.

On location in Ardoyne, Clare McComish, a ceramist based in Studio 23, puts the finishing touches to a ceramic mural, collaboration between the artist and community as part of the Re-Imaging Communities Programme.
