U-FEST Initiates Storytelling for Cultural Diversity

Unite Festival (U-FEST) in advancing its aim to promote social cohesion, express

cultural identity and foster cooperation and communication among ethnic communities,

host communities, local businesses, community groups and corporates announces its

partnership with St. Patrick’s festival to bring another brilliant celebration of cultural

diversity. The theme for this year’s festival is “Storytelling”.

For the first time in its history, PhoenixRize is partnering with St. Patrick’s Festival in its

national celebration to commemorate the heritage and culture of the Irish people by

bringing the most culturally diverse possible event to you (U-Fest); thereby creating an

atmosphere that celebrates the differences in all of us and bridges the gap between

cultures which is urgent and essential for peace, stability and social development.

With social inclusion at the core of the Unite Festival (U-Fest) initiative, it has since

2017, brought people from diverse cultures and backgrounds together to encourage

interaction, promote integration, showcase ethnic enterprise as well as share in one

another’s cultures by enjoying historical conversations, artistic performance,

photography food, cultural music and dance.

This one-day cultural event is slated for March 16 th , 2019 and will run from 11AM – 6PM at the Mulhuddart Community Centre, Dublin 15.

What’s more is that corporate organisations will be matched with community groups and will be tasked to give back to their matched communities in their most preferred

capacity. The communities will be carefully selected to cover 7 diverse touch points –

The Elderly, Young People, Children, Ethnic Minority, People with Disabilities, LGBT

and Women. Plaques of appreciation will be presented to the corporate organisations

during U-fest.

The day is observed with the intention of deepening society’s understanding of the

values of cultural diversity and advancing the goals of bringing the perfect blend of

multi-cultural and intra-racial celebration to a whole new dimension in the celebration of

the St Patrick’s Festival.

Date: 16th March 2019 11am-6pm

Venue: Mulhuddart Community Centre, Dublin 15
