#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.

Net-WORK Project Certificate Awards Night

As part of their integration work, Cultur and Meath Partnership secured funding from the Dormant Account Funds and partnered in delivering a programme aimed at addressing the barriers to employment experienced by migrant women in county Meath. The Net-WORK project was delivered through practical, hands on, integrative, accredited and non-accredited support and training programmes that enhanced the skills of women with leave to remain or refugee status to stay and progress in employment. These included soft skills training cultural awareness in the work place and job activation skills.

The certificate Awards Ceremony held in the Pillo hotel in Ashbourne on the 19 of December 2108 was to recognise and celebrate the incredible participants achievements from the year as well as taking time to reflect on the exceptional achievements for all those who have returned to work. It was a real honour to be able to celebrate and applaud all their efforts on this evening.
