Building Intercultural Communities (BIC) 2018 to 2020

The project has completed it work (2018 to 2020) and aimed to develop positive relations and the inclusion of and between Black Minority and Ethnic communities (including Travellers and Roma). This was achieved through creating the conditions for respect where cultural diversity is celebrated and communities live, learn and socialise together without prejudice or hate.

The project was a partnership between the lead organisation – Donegal Travellers Project and Donegal Intercultural Platform and was funded through the Special EU Programmes Body. The BIC Project run from November 2018 until August 2020 and was based at its offices at 18 Celtic Apartments, Letterkenny and covered the whole county of Donegal.

The project completed its work by August 2020, and the next steps were to link together all the people, associations and groups who have participated in the BIC Project into the ongoing work of the Platform. This will include the weekly Fáilte Isteach English Conversation workshops, the Syrian men’s group that meets each Thursday early evening, the Common Travel Area Campaign project as well as the regular members meetings to share experiences, ideas and actions…. so email donegalip@gmail.com or phone/text 0860841433 to get involved!  We worked with our partners in Donegal Travellers Project and with Donegal Local Development (DLDC) and drafted a new county-wide Equality project for Donegal called ThinkEquality that will commence its work in quarter 3 2021.
