CORK LEARNING CITY

Welcome to the 16th Cork Lifelong Learning Festival Congratulations to all involved in the 2019 Cork Lifelong Learning Festival... now acknowledged around the globe as best practice at work on the ground. That is because it is an inclusive festival for all our citizens – a people’s festival - and is one that we all can be proud of, having being recognised by UNESCO in 2017 as an exemplar of innovation. Cork’s festival is now being replicated around the world, from Limerick to Burnaby Canada, to Wyndham Australia, to Espoo Finland, to Swansea, to Belfast and back to Dublin which this year will have its very first Lifelong Learning Festival. It’s good to show the way for others to follow! These are all our ‘festival cousins’ and we wish them continued success as they grow and develop. It is a time of year when we celebrate the huge range of learning opportunities in our own city for people of all ages, interests and abilities. And we also celebrate and thank the people involved who make that learning possible: the organisers, the tutors and teachers, the administrators, the caretakers, the managers, the CEOs, the presidents, and of course the learners themselves. Through the 2019 festival, Cork’s UNESCO experience will be built upon to ensure that newer and even more flexible avenues for learning and education are being made available to those who may find it otherwise hard to access such options. The longest journey starts with the smallest of steps and if such steps can be made easier for those who traditionally found obstacles in their way, who knows where they will go with the comfort of guiding hands.

Comhghairdeas le gach duine a bhí páirteach i bhFéile Foghlama Chorcaí, dhá mhíle ‘is a naoi déag, atá aitheanta anois mar dheáchleachtas oibre ar fud an domhan. Tá an fhéile seo chun tairbhe gach saoránach sa chathair, is féile na ndaoine atá ann, cúis bróid dúinn ar fad. De réir UNESCO, is eiseamláir é an bhféile ó thaobh nuálaíocht agus fiontraíocht. Ní aon iontas é mar sin, go bhfuil cathracha eile ar fud na cruinne ag leanúint ar ndeá-shampla, ó chathair Luimnigh go Wyndham na hAstráile, Espoo na Fionnlainne, Swansea, Béal Feirste agus Baile Átha Cliath, atá le Féile Foghlama a chur ar bun don chead uair i mbliana. Seo iad ar gcomrádaithe sa togra seo, agus guímid gach rath orthu sna blianta atá ag teacht. Is maith an rud é ceiliúradh a dhéanamh ar an réimse leathan deiseanna foghlamtha atá curtha ar fáil do gach duine sa chathair, is cuma cén aois, suime nó ábaltacht atá acu. Agus is seans é seo, ár mbuíochas a ghabhail leo siúd ar fad a chuireann na cúrsaí ar fáil, idir lucht eagraíochta, múinteoirí, cúramóirí, bainisteoirí, ceannairí agus uachtaráin, agus ar ndóigh na foghlaimeoirí iad féin. Mar thoradh ar fhéile 2019 i bpáirt le UNESCO, leanfaimid orainn ag cinntiú go mbeidh na doirse i gcónaí oscailte dóibh siúd gur mian leo cuir lena gcuid oideachas, agus go mbeidh muid de shíor ag cuardach bealaigh nua chun deiseanna a chuir ar fáil do gach duine.

I wish you all well with the 16th lifelong and life-wide festival of learning. Learning and knowledge are no Cllr Mick Finn burdens to carry while travelling Árdmhéara Chorcaí through life. Go n’éirí libh. 4

Message from our Chairperson

A chairde, Fáilte romhaibh go léir chuig ár Féile Foghlama 2019.

Welcome to our Lifelong Learning Festival, now in its 16th year, and more varied than ever. This year we have added an extra day, giving more opportunities for you to get involved. Our opening day is ‘Cork Play Day’ and our final day includes our Family Fun Day, celebrating learning in Fitzgeralds Park. We hope your involvement in the Festival, whether as an event host or as an event participant (or both) is enjoyable and it inspires you to investigate more, participate more and celebrate more!

Willie Mc Auliffe Chair Cork Lifelong Learning Festival

It is with great pride that I welcome you this year’s Lifelong Learning Festival in Cork. As we have come to realise, this is a unique event, one that has captured the imagination of people both in the city and beyond and continues to grow and develop after 16 years. I want to thank the organising committee, in particular the chairperson Willie McAuliffe, the coordinator Siubhán McCarthy, and all the people from the voluntary, community, state and private sectors who contribute to the ongoing success in so many ways. Is le bród mór a chuirim fáilte romhaibh chuig Féile Foghlama feadh an tSaoil ne bliana seo i gCorcaigh. Mar a thuigimid níos fearr anois, imeacht uathúil atá anseo, ceann atá dulta I bhfeidhm ar shamhlaíocht na ndaoine, sa chathair féin, agus níos faide I gcéin. Leanann sí ag fás agus ag forbairt tar éis sé déag bhliain. Ba mhaith liom buíochas a ghabháil leis an gcoiste eagraithe, go hairithe Willie McAuliffe, an co…. Siúbhán MacCárthaigh, agus na daoine uile ó na harnálacha deonach, pobail, stáit agus príobháideach a chabhraíonn i mórán slite le rath leagúnach ne féile. Comhghairdeas.

CORK LEARNING CITY

Learning Neighbourhoods

Learning Neighbourhoods is a part of Learning Cities where learning, in all its forms and for all ages, is acknowledged and celebrated at local level. Learning Neighbourhoods highlight inclusive existing initiatives as well as creating new ones. It began on a pilot basis in two neighbourhoods, Ballyphehane and Knocknaheeny in 2015 and has since been expanded to include Togher, Mayfield, South Parish and The Glen. In each of these Learning Neighbourhoods, local coordinating groups plan and run events during the Festival and throughout the year. It is about celebrating learning and trying new things, making new connections, having fun and communities working together to benefit all of its residents. Each of the Learning Neighbourhoods have lots on offer and are delighted with the opportunity to show what’s happening. Ballyphehane are hosting a concert and events based on the theme of the Sustainable Development Goals; Knocknaheeny are running a number of talks in the Library, and putting on a performance of local talent with GMC Beats and organising a Heritage Trail, in association with the Boys and Girls of Knocka.

102

Togher will be screening its Learning Neighbourhood Video which shows the great work being done by the schools, Sports, Youth and Community Organisations in the area. Mayfield are showcasing all of the community groups and activities in the area in the Frank O’Connor Library along with performances from local schools. South Parish are organising a Learning Trail, which is a map of the local places of learning with lots of fun and events along the way. The Glen are planning a Community Play-day after the Festival and running Outreach programmes in association with CIT and UCC. Some of the Learning Neighbourhoods are also collaborating with UCC and CIT to host talks and workshops, art exhibitions and trails, theatre performances and movie showings and information session on returning to education.

Cork Lifelong Learning Festival and Féile an Phobail Belfast Since a Co-operation Ireland programme was held during the festival in 2008 Cork Lifelong Learning Festival has had a connection with Belfast, and has been committed to this connection and to developing stronger relations between the cities in the context of the Peace Process and the Good Friday Agreement. In 2009 the first event featuring Féile an Phobail - the Festival of the People was held and 10 years later in 2019 we celebrate and acknowledge the links and the friendships that have subsequently developed between the two festivals over the years. In 2010 the partnership between the two festival s was formally announced; in 2011 the President of Ireland Mary McAleese welcomed it as she officially opened the Cork festival; in 2012 the Lord Mayor of Belfast Niall O’Donnghaile jointly launched the festival with the Lord Mayor of Cork Terry Shannon. Exchanges and projects happen each year – among them mural painting by Mahon Community Development Project’s Men’s

Art Group under instruction from Belfast mural artists including Frank Quigley. Young people from nationalist and unionist areas in Belfast and Lisburn visit Cork together to learn how to build and row traditional currachs with Meitheal Mara. Our festival copied Féile’s ‘Scribes’ event, bringing writers from different parts of Ireland together to read from their work. Relationships have built up between the individuals and organisations involved, so they continue year-round, including participation by Belfast in the Cork City Marathon and vice-versa. Bringing together even a few individuals together to work on projects can forge understanding and co-operation as people learn a little about each other and recognise things we all have in common. In 2018 the leaders of all of these projects presented on their work at an event hosted by Belfast Learning City and the Cork Lifelong Learning Festival helped celebrate Féile’s 30th birthday, being invited to the launch by Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and Lord Mayor of Belfast Deirdre Hargey. This work and these connections continue and grow and all involved look forward to many more years growing together as ‘Festival cousins’.

CORK LEARNING CITY

Host of 3rd UNESCO International Conference on Learning Cities 2017

Cork Learning City Our people make Cork a Learning City. This is recognised by UNESCO, who presented Cork with a Learning City Award in 2015. Cork was one of the first 12 cities to achieve this award worldwide, and is one of only seven cities in Europe to achieve this award to date. The success of our Lifelong Learning Festival was one of the key reasons Cork City achieved this global recognition. When UNESCO selected Cork to host the 3rd International Conference on Learning Cities in 2017 it was another significant statement of support for the city’s track record in recognising and promoting lifelong learning. Our Vision: Celebrating and supporting learning - all ways and for all

We see Cork as a place where active engagement in learning, lifelong and lifewide, by all people, is seen as part of our identity and our culture. We see learning as a means to transform lives, locally and globally; and we are committed to leaving no-one behind.
