#TogetherAgainnnstRacism

Today we at Cultúr are marking a day of cultural respect for everyone who calls Ireland home.

According to Ireland Network Against Racism RACISM is: Any action, practice, policy, law, speech, or incident which has the effect (whether intentional or not) of undermining anyone’s enjoyment of their human rights, based on their actual or perceived ethnic or national origin or background, where that background is that of a marginalised or historically subordinated group. Racism carries connotations of violence because the dehumanisation of ethnic groups has been historically enforced through violence.

In other words, racism is when an individual, group, structure or institution intentionally or unintentionally abuse their power to the detriment of people, because of their actual or perceived “racialised” background.

You may have seen racism in your school, workplace and community. You can be a powerful voice against it: you can make a difference.

Join our campaign to raise awareness of racism, how it works, the damage it causes and how we can recognise and reject it by liking, loving and sharing this post.

If you wish to contribute to this campaign, please express your thoughts, views and experiences on racism in Ireland by following us on FB and Instagram. See links below.

Meath Job Fair

Meath Job Fair

On the 11th of September Cultur and Meath Partnership hosted the  “Meath Job Fair” in The Trim Castle Hotel.

As part of our socio-economic integration  work Cultúr Migrant Centre and Meath Partnership have been working on the NetWORK project, a project that focuses on supporting migrant women to gain employability skills. The NetWORK Project has provided comprehensive life and job ready skills training that equipped over 115 female refugees and migrants over the course of 2 years with the skills required to succeed in Ireland.

The Job fair was open to the public and approximately 112 people were in attendance. During the day, attendees had a unique opportunity to meet with  recruitment agencies and potential employers from various organisations all in the same room. Some of the attendees also had their CV looked at by job coaches and for those interested in setting up their own businesses, mentors were available to offer a free service.

At the conclusion of the job fair up to 20 attendees had met with a job coach for one to one support  discussed employment opportunities with up to 15 potential employers.

The NetWORK Project was approved by Government with the support of the Dormant Accounts Fund.

European Action Against Racism Week

As part of European Action Against Racism Week Cultúr ran a very successful campaign aimed at raising awareness and combating the issue of racism in Ireland today.
We delivered anti racism workshops to over 100 transition year students aimed at addressing racism through reflection and art.
To finish off our two week campaign of actions we held our annual Anti Racism Day event which was very well attended. We had guest speakers, Q & A’s, information stands and some of the finest traditional food from all over the globe.
 
Cultúr would like to thank the community for being so proactive in engaging with us to highlight and combat racism as it is an integral part of the work we do to develop a fair, equal and diverse society in County Meath.
