Nerve Centre is Northern Ireland's leading creative media arts centre.
Nerve Centre was established in 1990 in Derry~Londonderry, Northern Ireland to provide a creative outlet for youth culture and the many young people who felt excluded from the arts sector.
Since then, it has become many things to many people, from nurturing new music and film talent to its award winning creative learning activities and culturally significant projects. But one thing remains, its commitment and passion to transform lives through creativity.
More than 120,000 people a year benefit from Nerve Centre’s wide-ranging programme of arts events, cutting edge projects, community relations activities, creative learning centres, training opportunities, and state-of-the-art production facilities. A successful social economy enterprise, Nerve Centre employs more than 50 staff at sites in Derry~Londonderry and Belfast. Staff include experienced cultural project managers, content developers, creative media trainers, animators, events programmers and marketers.
