"Breaking Barriers": A participatory approach to defining socio- economic discrimination
ATD Ireland are working on a new project funded by IHREC; Breaking barriers: A participatory approach to defining socio- economic discrimination. This project will bring together the voices of those with lived experience of poverty and socio- economic discrimination, academics and professionals working in the community and voluntary sector. In a participatory way, we hope to raise awareness and build a deeper understanding of socio- economic discrimination, working to create a robust definition which will help progress the #Addthe10th campaign.
"Lockdown Liberties: Spoken and Written Word"
Lockdown liberties was a project undertaken during the early stages of the pandemic in order to keep connected with one another during those trying days. People were able to find hope through the creative process of writing. This group is important in giving the participants avenue to express their deepest thoughts and feelings, and share stories particularly with those who often have difficulties in doing so. Those involved found a personal growth throughout the project and gained confidence, not only within the writing but also within themselves.
