MEASC – AN ANNUAL FESTIVAL OF CULTURE AND FAITHS
HOSTED BY DUBLIN CITY INTERFAITH FORUM AND DUBLIN CITY COUNCIL
HERBERT PARK, DUBLIN
SUNDAY– 16th SEPTEMBER, 2018
12PM – 5PM
MEASC is an annual festival of culture and faiths, which draws on and celebrates the diversity of contemporary Irish society.
This free, family day out, celebrates the diversity of Dublin’s communities, offering a bridge between our various cultures and faiths in a fun day, full of music, food, song, dance and culture – with a great diversity of cultures represented.
MEASC, which means ‘mix’ in Irish, is now in its second year, and is hosted by the Dublin City Interfaith Forum, with Dublin City Council. This one–day festival aims to showcase the beauty and richness of faith and culture from our diverse faith communities.
Apart from MEASC bringing all faith traditions together, it is most importantly lots of fun and a good family day out, with games and workshops for children, and for adults too.
MEASC, which was held in Merrion Square last year, is set to grow into a well known annual event in the life of Dublin City.
This year, the festival will host Syrian refugee families from different accommodation centres and offer children and adults alike an opportunity to reconnect with familiar culture, arts and foods, from home and abroad.
There will be a craft bazaar, food market, performances and other cultural activities on the day.
The event is free and is the perfect community outdoor event to end the summer.
