Social Inclusion Awareness Week
Mayo Social Inclusion Week gives us the chance to promote and highlight the very positive work that the public and community sectors do on a day to day basis to reduce discrimination, racism, poverty and social exclusion and to reflect on the many challenges faced by vulnerable members in our community. The 2022 Mayo Social Inclusion Week Theme is “Arts as a Social Inclusion tool”. 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. It helps people to express themselves, be authentic and provides opportunities to celebrate our uniqueness.
