Good Relations Week is a signature celebration co-ordinated by the Community Relations Council. It is the largest showcase of cross community and multi-cultural arts, history, music and discussion on the island of Ireland.

For Good Relations Week 2021, CRC co-ordinated a highly impactful programme of over 300 face-to-face events, virtual events and online content from a diverse range of groups and organisations.

Good Relations Week 2021 ran from Monday 20 to Sunday 26 September and contained a diverse and colourful programme. The theme for this year’s showcase was "Brighter Days Ahead" which celebrates the efforts of young people in their everyday lives to break down barriers, unite communities and act as a catalyst for meaningful change in our society.
