Mayo Social Inclusion Awareness Week champions the arts

By 5th October 2022No Comments

Mayo Social Inclusion Awareness Week 2022 runs from October 10th to October 16th inclusive and this year’s theme is “Arts as a Social Inclusion tool”.

It is an initiative of Mayo Local Community Development Committee’s (LCDC) Social Inclusion and Community Development Working Group. Digital Social Inclusion Awareness Week 2022 Booklet

Chaired by Cllr Neil Cruise, the working group comprises representatives from many community groups and organisations throughout County Mayo.

Mayo Social Inclusion Awareness Week affords the chance to pro-
mote the very positive work that the voluntary and community sectors do on a day-to-day basis to reduce discrimination, racism, poverty and
social exclusion.

The aim of the week is to highlight and support initiatives throughout the county that foster inclusion and equality and it is also an opportu-
nity to celebrate the diversity of people in County Mayo.

Recognising the arts by giving life to multiple forms of expression can become a tool to improve social inclusion and to create bonds between people.

Through the arts we have the ability to make connections, facilitate
well-being, be empowered and strengthen our self-confidence.

The arts help people to express themselves, be authentic and provide opportunities to celebrate our uniqueness.
