Cohesive Cultures and Heritage in Action (2017)
Funded by BEMIS as part of 2017 Scottish Year of History Heritage and Archeology (YHHA), Cohesive Culture and Heritage in Action (CCHiA) is the EWFC first project. It was aimed at celebrating Scotland’s rich diversity, culture and heritage and how it interacts and relates to other cultures. Our project has been successful in creating and facilitating the opportunity and environment for cohesive, friendly and happy cultural interaction.
We gathered wide range of diverse Scottish, African, Asian and European Migrant communities together. We have arranged an informal conversation with two community activist presenters (Scottish African and a Scottish /European Migrant) who inspired and encouraged a vibrant interactive and interesting debate on two subjects:
- The history of diverse Glasgow with the focus on Glasgow’s role of supporting South Africans during their struggle against the Apartheid ( presented by the Sudanese Mr Elhkatim Abdalla “Real Scot”)
- Shared food from diverse cultures presented by Mrs Verene Nicolas.
The Cohesive Cultures and Heritage event strengthened participnats’ sense of citizenship and showed how proud, cohesive and diverse Scottish communities are. Also, it improved the confidence and assertiveness of ethnic minority women by observing talented and assertive speakers and an interesting debate.
