Chinese Cultural Awareness

The Chinese community is the largest non EU community in Northern Ireland. The community is a varied community of ‘settled’ and migrant population. The history of the Chinese community in Northern Ireland spans over 40 years and they are into their 4th and 5th generation. Yet since 1997, Chinese people continue to migrate to Northern Ireland for various reasons and many are students at the local universities and colleges. Many speak Cantonese and Mandarin as their first or second language.

Northern Ireland is fast improving relations with China and in recent year remarkable progression has been made from industry, education and in 2014 the announcement of the Chinese Consulate.

Chinese culture is rich and varied as evident in its arts, history, cuisine and calendar with festivals.

We delivered Cultural Awareness by facilitators with insight and knowledge of ethnic minority communities, representing Chinese, Polish and Traveller communities.

An understanding of these how other cultures is important to Northern Ireland. It is essential in order to improve access and effectiveness of health, education, accommodation and related services.

These workshops have been designed to put across the point of view from the minority ethnic community CRAIC NI will give examples to engage agencies, organisations and groups who come into contact with the minority ethnic communities.
