Building Ethnic Support and Understanding

Community Engagement Night with attendees from across the Ethnic and Settled spectrum.

Five Groups promoting their Faith, Culture, Cuisine and Arts.

Each group will be provided with appropriate safe space to display their wares and promote cultural awareness to the wider settled and ethnic community.

The aim of the project is to promote a better understanding of the vibrant society that we live in and the wide range of cultural identities within it. It will promote better understanding, inclusion, respect and more so acceptance of each groups’ unique characteristics. It will build upon community bonding, create friendships and ultimately build good connections that will heighten active community engagement and partnerships going forward.

Currently there is fear and distrust within the community among our respective groupings which is preventing respective groups part-taking in community projects such as health and well-being, educational programmes and training opportunities. We need to avail of this funding opportunity to promote inclusion that builds upon respect of everyone’s identity and promotes harmony moving forward.
