We would like to invite you to our Multi-cultural Family Fun Day on Friday, July 1st at 10.45am at which the Minister for Children & Youth Affairs, Dr Katherine Zappone has kindly agreed to launch the Hill Street FRC’s photo exhibition titled:
‘Cherishing all of the Children of the Nation Equally 1916-2016’
This is a cross generational, multi-cultural photography exhibition, funded by Dublin City Council, commemorating 1916 through the production of a visual photographic record of the changing face of families living in the local community close to Hill Street from 1916 to 2016.
Over the course of 3 days, Jeanette Lowe, a photographic artist, took forty-eight family portraits from 18 different nationalities, which will be on display from July 1st as part of the exhibition. Through a dialogue on the meaning of community and belonging with local residents and the families who take part in Hill Street programs, we hope that this process has laid the foundations to building closer relationships between families from the New Communities and our older neighbours.
Following the launch, we will be celebrating a Multi-Cultural Family Fun Day with entertainment, arts and crafts and outdoor sport activities for both the children and their parents/carers. Please bring food to share with you.
The exhibition will then be open to the public on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10.00-12.00 and 14.00-16.00 until the 12th of August 2016.
