European Year of Cultural Heritage

2018 has been designated European Year of Cultural Heritage. The aim is to inspire people to get involved with heritage activities and events in their communities. The theme is “Make a Connection” and is very much focused on involvement at individual, community and national level.

Westside Resource Centre will be involved in a number of heritage events in the coming year, the first of which – a St. Brigid’s Cross workshop - has already taken place.

Christmas 2017 Arrangements

Merry Christmas & Prosperous New Year to all from the staff of Westside Resource Centre

2017 Christmas Market and Family Day

Westside's annual Christmas Market and Family Day takes place on Friday 8th December this year. This ever-popular event will showcase the wonderful items produced by Westside Community Patchers, Westside Community Craft Group and Westside Community Garden - among others - and will also include seasonal songs, stories and a straw craft workshop.

The day will be rounded off with the traditional Westside Christmas Raffle and live music in the pop-up Community Café.

All of the day's proceeds will go towards supporting the work of the community groups throughout the coming year.

Westside International event

The postponed "Westside International" is back on the calendar!

The event will be comprised of the official opening of the community art project exhibition "Painting the Planet" followed by international music and finger food. Also being launched on the night are Galway City Partnership's BRIDGE (Building a Receptive, Integrated and Diverse Galway of Equals) project and Galway Integration Consortium's new Facebook page.

All are welcome to join us for this celebration of our multicultural, creative community.
