Belfast Peacelines

Ambulatorio, an art based peace building initiative between the peace gates on the Flax Street interface in North Belfast. Artist Oscar Munoz has laid down panels of aerial pictures of north Belfast between the peace gates which will be opened for a short time allowing community members to cross the interface through this route for the first time. A confidence building concept, the installation invites residents to imagine walking around a north Belfast free of walls and gates.

More than a decade after a peace deal was signed, Belfast has over 80 peace lines and interface areas that separate Catholic and Protestant communities.
