News and events Disability Action Supports Good Relations Week 2023! Disability Action is proud to support the Community Relations Council in celebrating Good Relations Week 2023. Good Relations 2023 will deliver the positive message of embracing ‘Togetherness’ for meaningful change. It will help shine a light on the efforts of individuals and organisations who come together, share ideas, experiences, and perspectives, to tackle everything from sectarianism and racism to gender inequality, shared spaces, peace-building, and cultural diversity. The annual celebration of peace building and cultural diversity work will run from Monday 18th to Sunday 24th September 2023 – and Disability Action wants to help ensure as many local individuals, groups and organisations get involved and embrace working ‘Together’. The theme for Good Relations Week 2023 is ‘Together’ and will highlight the importance of local organisations working collaboratively and collectively to drive meaningful progress towards building a shared future for everyone. The Community Relations Council would love to see many individuals and organisations participate and register physical events, online events or even some pieces of online content. Some examples could be workshops, lectures, discussion panels, music or theatre performances, exhibitions, archive videos, short film showings and so much more! Check out the event toolkit for more info on the type of events you can run.
