Mental Health Ireland and partners from the Traveller Mental Health Co-production Group are inviting members of the Traveller Community of all ages and interests to showcase their creative skills in a Christmas competition celebrating Traveller culture, resilience, and hope for the new year and beyond.

The Traveller Christmas Creativity Competition 2021 welcomes all kinds of artistic skills and passions, from painting and drawing to make-up, nails to table centrepieces, writing, poetry, traditional crafts etc.

The competition will close at 5 pm on Thursday, December 16 and winners will be announced in a special virtual prize-giving event on December 21.

Special guests at the event will include artist Francesca Hutchinson and Fr Richard Gibbons from Knock Parish with a Christmas blessing.

Even Santa himself will make an appearance alongside a special performer.
