Thomas Hunter Inclusion Seminar - Abhainn Ri Festival

(01 Jul 2016)

A ‘Them and Us’ approach to citizenship excluding migrants, refugees or homeless people is a betrayal of the values set out by the men and women who fought for Irish independence 100-years ago, according to Sr Stanislaus Kennedy.

The founder of the Immigrant Council of Ireland and Focus Ireland is warning that migrants and people who are homeless must not be viewed as ‘the other person’.

Sr Stan made her remarks as a Keynote speaker at the Thomas Hunt Inclusion Seminar, during the Abhainn Rí Festival, Parish Hall, Callan, Co. Kilkenny.

The Thomas Hunter Inclusion Seminar is a day long event which brings together artists, activists, communities and individuals to contribute talks, workshops, performance and discussions to a conversation about diversity, citizenship and inclusion in rural Ireland today.

The festival runs from 23rd June-03 July in Callan, Kilkenny.
