Since 2016, Mayo, Donegal and South Dublin County Councils have collaborated on research to develop models of best practice in relation to cultural diversity under the Arts Council of Ireland, Invitation to Collaboration scheme.

Peter Duggan, Chief Executive (Interim) of Mayo County Council said 'We were delighted to partner with South Dublin County Council and Donegal County Council on a project that proactively improves cultural diversity. Mayo County Council appreciates the role arts projects have to play in engaging with all of our communities, they are a key driver in building meaningful relationships with people from culturally diverse backgrounds throughout Ireland. 

This guide is a source of encouragement– to help Local Authorities and cultural providers begin the process of how, through community consultation, they might develop a range of tailored cultural services that engage more effectively with people from culturally diverse backgrounds.
