Here’s what to expect in some more detail – “Our long running Drama & Dance project is aimed at young people from ethnic minorities. It is a free Drama and Dance program, with classes in Belfast and Ballymena. After some training in Drama and Dance, in November we make a festival day of workshops and performances based around all cultures involved. Our aim is to create an equal and safe environment for all young people in Northern Ireland. This program helps young people begin to understand other cultures outside of Irish, British and Northern Irish. For older members, it encourages governance in their own communities and proactive peace-building in their local areas.”
