‘From Around the World; Celebrating Our Cultures’ Project
The ‘From Around the World; Celebrating Our Cultures’ project celebrates the rich cultural diversity that exists within the district. It demonstrates the importance of the preservation and promotion of the various cultures both local and from all over the world. It also highlights the many similarities between the different cultures, showcasing that while we may differ, we are the same in many ways.
The project presents different cultures and traditions through participants’ photographs, personal stories, cultural artefacts and voices in a virtual exhibition and a book. It encourages everyone to embrace diversity, learn new things and enjoy the beauty in everything. Everybody belongs!
‘From Around the World; Celebrating Our Cultures’ virtual exhibition
The virtual exhibition tour provides the opportunity to view the gallery exhibition from the comfort of your home. It is an enjoyable film, offering a walk through the gallery with an insightful narration and subtitles. It is also an excellent educational tool and cultural resource for schools, youth clubs, community groups and individuals. You can access it by clicking here.
‘From Around the World; Celebrating Our Cultures’ book
The book is a written reflection of the gallery exhibition and its official launch. It presents fourteen different cultures, telling the stories of people who have made their home in or have strong connections to the district, and sharing their beautiful cultural artefacts. It is important to point out that these are not all the cultures present and represented in the Council area, but rather a sample of the great diversity locally.
