It is with great honour that we write to invite you to the North West Migrants Forum celebration event in honour of the great achievements of our young people who took part in the Discover an Intercultural NI project. This indoor, family-friendly celebration is also a culmination of a series of activities delivered throughout the months of April 2018- March 2019. The event is taking place on the 30th of March 2019 at the Play House in Derry-Londonderry from 11am to 3pm.
Discover an Intercultural NI project worked with 8 post primary schools across DCSDC area to strengthen social cohesion and inclusion by improving attitudes between young people from minority ethnic communities (BME) and young people from majority cultures.
The project focused on cultural diversity and inclusion around the Derry City and Strabane District Council area. Presenting testimonials and experiences from project participants, the event will also feature the screening of our Discover an Intercultural NI short film and the official launch of our 2017 Shared Stories Safe Spaces policy brief.
In addition to testimonials and presentations, the event will boast a line-up of exciting activities and local musical talent for the whole family to enjoy. A children’s craft and entertainment corner, Intercultural performances by St Cecilia’s Irish dancers, Highland dancers, hip-hop fusion dance performed by our very own young cultural ambassadors and intercultural foods will bring voice and flair to the theme of this day.
This is a family friendly free event and it is open to the public! We look forward to welcoming you all!
This year Stronger Together Network Annual Conference is entitled:
‘WHO LIVES HERE BELONGS. Exploring unique journeys and shared future of people living in Northern Ireland’
In the aftermath of Brexit – deal, no deal or delay – we would like to explore the diversity of people living in Northern Ireland and how our lives and futures are intertwined and interdependent. We will look at unique journeys and different pathways, but also shared experiences and concerns as well as what lies ahead and how to collectively work towards Northern Ireland that truly embraces diversity and equality.
The event as always will be interactive and participatory. We invite both Stronger Together members and non-members to attend, contribute, participate and share information and good practice and inspire each other to continue working in the fields of ethnicity, diversity and equality.
We would like to offer grass-root projects and organizations working with/for ethnic minorities, migrant workers and refugees & asylum seekers an opportunity to have an information stall showcase their work. We envisage 10 to 12 stands.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to book a stand AND also book your ticket at eventbrite to attend the event.
We are also planning to provide a travel assistance especially for those traveling from Derry, Strabane and Omagh so please mark on your registration if you would like to avail of it or email us on email@example.com
