Following the launch of our Cultural Strategy in November 2011 the Federation of Irish Societies is delighted to give you an update on developments surrounding the ‘Ireland Inspires…’ campaign.London 2012 is going to be the greatest show on earth. With every single nation broadcasting and focusing on Britain during the games the Irish Community need to ensure that their sporting and cultural offer takes the opportunity to shine and engage new audiences.
A National Campaign
With your help we will be developing and delivering a national campaign which will celebrate and profile the Irish cultural offer in Britain amongst new and existing audiences. Our coverage of culture will extend across arts, sports and heritage and aims to generate a pride in the community about our cultural contribution to Britain.
A website with lots of campaign resources is currently being developed and will be launched in March 2012. At this stage we need your help!
Don’t miss out – Submit your events today
We are asking all Irish Groups and organisations to submit their arts, sport and heritage events planned for 2012 to our event database for the new website. Submitting your events is easy and can be done by following this link: Submit my events
