To provide information and encourage discussion, these awareness-raising events and workshops can be broadly themed or specific to issues such as migration, asylum, or racism

‘Small World’ Café ~ An introduction to cultures in NI (15 – 24 people)
‘Small Worlds’ are cafe-style events in which people circulate around tables hosted by volunteers from different nationalities. The workshops introduce a taste of the diversity that exists in NI and provide safe space in which participants can engage with those from different backgrounds and other parts of the world.
The conversations take place in a safe and semi-structured setting that is carefully managed by a facilitator.
Currently this is provided through the South Belfast Roundtable and availability is limited due to funding.

Migration and Us: Migration Awareness (15 – 20 people)

Seeking Refuge: Refugee Awareness (15 – 40 people)
