Embracing Multiculturalism

February 1, 2017

Bunclody Library Exhibition February 2017

Bunclody VTOS students, whose nationalities include, Irish, Polish, Latvian and Lithuanian decided on a theme of respecting different cultural identities. The students made 1000 origami cranes in order to make a wish. The installation comprises of 1000 cranes, handmade by students and staff as part of a project for QQI modules, ESOL (English for speakers of other languages), Team working and Understanding Interculturalism.

Their wish is for all of us to embrace multiculturalism.

The cranes symbolise purity of spirit and clarity of thought without the negativity associated with prejudice and fear. Their upright and elegant carriage reflects their dignified status as the noble birds, worthy of serving as messengers.The migrating birds represent liberty and freedom. Each crane is an individual and flies in safety.They bring colour and individuality to their homes.

Why not call into Bunclody Library and see this wonderful display of 1,000 Cranes throughout the library. It is truly amazing and not to be missed.
