About the Youth Cultural Expressions Programme Funding

  • Funding has been made available by The Department of Education for the provision of A Youth Cultural Expression Programme.
  • This Programme aims to deliver positive community relations through youth work interventions in communities that have not previously, or have only partially, participated in peace building and reconciliation activities.
  • This programme works with communities to build sustainable peace and prosperity in areas suffering from high levels of economic and social deprivation, where there are low levels of engagement in peace building and where the Peace Process has delivered limited benefits.
