Culture Connecting Communities
01 January 2013 - 30 June 2013
Culture Connects Communities’ programme will enable communities across the city to examine the synergies and legacies of their cultural and historical heritage, building their capacity to celebrate their cultural identity on an individual basis as well as a collaborative one. A range of young people will work with their peers, facilitators and artists over a five month period to realize and create expressions of both their single and collective cultural identity within a traditional and contemporary context.
The project will connect diverging narratives about the past enabling participants to develop a shared identity for the city and district which acknowledges, respects and celebrates difference. This acknowledgement will be expressed on a collaborative basis with all of the participants showcasing this transition through a wide variety of creative mediums such as dance, music, visual art, film and performance during the Colmcille celebrations in June 2013.
This programme is funded by PEACE III Programme and managed on behalf of the Special EU Programmes Body by the North West PEACE III Cluster Group.
