Following on from the success of the From Around the World; Celebrating Our Cultures exhibition at Enniskillen Castle Museums, Fermanagh and Omagh District Council has launched an online resource, a virtual exhibition tour and a book reflecting on the exhibition.
The From Around the World; Celebrating Our Cultures project celebrates the rich cultural diversity within the Fermanagh and Omagh district and underlines the importance of the preservation and promotion of the various cultures both local and international. The exhibition also showcases the many similarities between the different cultures, highlighting that while we may differ, we are the same in many ways.
Speaking about the launch of the virtual exhibition tour and book, the Chair of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Diana Armstrong, said:
“Fermanagh and Omagh District Council is committed to promoting good relations and inclusion for everyone in the district. The Council’s Good Relations Programme supports the positive expression of the wide variety of cultures and traditions within the Council area.
“The creation of the virtual tour and book will provide a lasting record of the exhibition and will serve as a fitting reminder of the cosmopolitan nature of our district and the rich cultural diversity which is now indicative of our society.”
The virtual tour of the exhibition provides an insightful narration of the exhibition, and serves as an excellent educational tool and cultural resource for schools, youth clubs, community groups and individuals.
