Claremorris Community Radio sucht einen Partner für Maßnahme 2.3
impact of migration on migrants and receiving communities
This is a democratic engagement project to be conducted in cunjunction with other European Community organisations, to look into the impact of migration on migrants and receiving communities. Its aim is to create links and to celebrate all the diversity of cultures involved. We would make maximum use of existing liaison structures and facilitation groups within the community. We wish the concept of challenge to be acknowledged within the project.
Claremorris Community Radio is a volunteerled, not-for-profit radio station. We aim to reflect the diversity of cultures and the range of abilities of our catchment area. We promote community development and invite all individuals and community organisations to participate in our programming and offer training and media skills development. Volunteers and employees are the presenters, researchers and producers of our programmes which aim to stimulate, inform, educate and entertain our listenership. We promote and respect programming of all types and genres but particularly welcome Irish language content. There is an onus on everyone involved with Claremorris Community radio to behave in a spirit of mutual respect. We define our community as those who live, have lived or have any tangible connection to the Claremorris area. Role of Partners: To replicate the process with other population centres the processes involved in constructing links to newer migrant groups and appreciating existing cross-cultural connections. Allow a broad-based interpretation of definition in order to facilitate differences of experience. Comments: Claremorris is one of the fastest growing small towns in Ireland. Our community has grown by 73% since 2004. Most of this increase can be seen in a population increase of New-Irish. This change has impacted on the schools, social services, community organisations, social interactivity, etc. It has changed an area which was mono-cultural into a multi-cultural one. To some this is a positive, to others a negative. We wish to reflect this dichotomy in tackling the reality of migration in our community whether that migration may derive from economic or asylum causes.
