Introduction

by An Cathaoirleach, Cllr. Cormac Devlin

I am really delighted to have the opportunity to introduce this

new look Festival of Inclusion Brochure and to welcome you to

our 2016 Festival of Inclusion.

Festival of Inclusion has become a flagship event in the dlr events

calendar as it continues to develop and encourage communities

to celebrate and showcase their work and activities carried

on throughout the year. The idea behind Festival of Inclusion

community hosted events, is that they raise awareness and provide

visitors with opportunities to engage, participate, question and

experience things which are unfamiliar to them, the outcome of

which is that they are enriched, informed and more likely to take

a proactive, respectful approach to living in a diverse and vibrant

county.

This county-wide week long Festival of Inclusion offers not only

a wonderful opportunity to highlight the excellent work being

done to eliminate disadvantage and marginalisation, but also

offers opportunities for networking and collaboration. I note this

year for example, that Nutgrove Shopping Centre is hosting the

very popular “Diversity Fashion Show” in collaboration with the

4 Family Resource Centres from the west side of the County with

members of the respective local communities acting as models.

I am also pleased to see that this year there is still a wide range

of Art Exhibitions from some of the most inspirational people in

our county. They work hard throughout the year preparing their

various pieces and the culmination is their exhibition in County

Hall. It is also great that this year these exhibitions are going to be

integrated into the wider ”Community Awards “ exhibition.

I would also like to draw your attention to the the RehabCare, “We

Belong” variety show on Wednesday 12th October – a guaranteed

fun night !

I wish to congratulate all of the communities, participants, hosts,

volunteers and dlr partners on this wonderful collaboration and

I look forward to meeting some of you and other visitors to the

numerous events during the week.
