Mayo Social Inclusion Awareness Week 2021

26 August 2021

Mayo Social Inclusion Awareness Week 2021 takes place from Monday October 11th to Sunday October 17th.

'The aim of Mayo SIAW has been to support and organise initiatives throughout the county that foster inclusion, equality and social connectedness. It is an opportunity to celebrate the diversity of people in County Mayo, to showcase the work of your organisation and/ or to organise a special activity or event which promotes inclusion.

The types of events and activities held previously were for example; seminars, webinars, poetry competitions, workshops, exhibitions, coffee mornings, sports events, drama, storytelling, flower making, talks and debates, information events, displays, music recitals, initiatives to improve accessibility, films etc. (the list is not exhaustive).

With all this in mind this year we are asking you as our stakeholders to reimagine the type of event you might roll out under our 2021 ‘Connecting’ theme and ask of course that the event is rolled out a following strict HSE guidelines.

As per previous years a brochure/pamphlet of events will be compiled. If you would like to be included in the brochure/pamphlet please complete the booking form and return it to the Community and Integrated Development Section Mayo County Council (contact details listed on form) by Friday September 3rd, 2021.
