One Donegal Cultural Diversity Month 2012
6 June 2012
Donegal CDB Peace and Reconciliation Partnership is hosting its third“One Donegal Cultural Diversity Month” in November 2012. This project is managed by Donegal County Council on behalf of the Partnership.
Community and voluntary groups along with other organisations will be invited to participate in this programme of events. Donegal County Council using the funding available will cover the costs incurred in hosting events, programmes and activities during this month, for any events that are selected by the assessment panel using selection criteria. A high profile launch for this month of events is planned for the first week of November and the events will be strongly supported in the media. Any events that do take place during the month will go in to a Programme of Events and be circulated widely from the end of September. It is hoped that planned events will fit into one or more of the following criteria:
· Create a greater understanding of what constitutes sectarianism and racism and how it
impacts on individuals, communities and societies.
· Promote Cultural Diversity and commonalities
· Showcase positive actions that promote equality
· Opportunities to bring people together and promote interculturalism
Events can include launches, showcases, workshops, conferences, drama, research results, exhibitions, an open day, site visits, school events - anything as long as it meets one of the above criteria, and can be held anywhere in the county. In addition we are keen to work with all age ranges and all sections of the community.
In order for a firm plan of events to be put in place and to forecast costs for the running of the events, it is essential that all groups who are interested in holding events, complete the proposal form in full using the guidelines provided and return to us together with required additional documentation by Friday 17th August 2012. Please note that if your group is planning to hold more than one event, a separate proposal form needs to be completed for each initiative.
Guidelines relating to procurement and publicity are included in the guidance notes. These guidelines are laid down by the Special European Union Programmes Body and must be adhered to.
Once all the proposals have been received and appraised, we will contact you regarding your submission.
