Grant Aid 2020 Showcase
As part of Good Relations Week, we are showcasing the projects that came out of last year’s Good Relations Grant funding from Antrim & Newtownabbey Borough Council.
BEAM Creative Network used their grant funding to work a project with schools in the Antrim & Newtownabbey area, bringing children together from various walks of life through the mediums of dance and filming.
The video below reflects on their experience and how they put their funding to. use.
Monkstown Boxing Club’s Good Relations project originated from the young members of the club. These young people wanted to get outside of their comfort zone and create a group of individuals who weren't just from Monkstown. They wanted to meet new people from different backgrounds and cultures and learn from that. Out of this, their Good Relations journey started to take shape.
Sentry Hill & Antrim Castle Gardens - The Past The Present and The Future
As part of Good Relations Week 2020, Celebrating Our Journey, Embracing our Future we wanted to showcase some of our historic sites across the Borough; highlighting their journey to date, how we use these venues now and our hopes for the future.
The videos below showcase the shared space of Sentry Hill Historic House and antrim castle Gardens including its rich history dating back to the 1800s.
