Since the early 1990’s, UNITED coordinates every year, around 21 March, the European-wide Action Week Against Racism. Activists, NGO’s, universities, schools, municipalities and a wide variety of different organisations carry out hundreds of activities all around Europe in order to bring an end to racism, discrimination and intolerance.
To mark European Week Against Racism, the Social Inclusion Unit, Community Services Department, South Dublin County Council hold a children and adults arts competition which aims to combat racism, celebrate diversity and promote the social inclusion of people living in Ireland today.
By entering the competition the South Dublin County Council’s Social Inclusion Unit hopes to create awareness of European Action Week Against Racism and give children and adults a platform to discuss what racism means to them. The competition is advertised on South Dublin County Councils website and social media every year around January.
