Introduction to ‘Celebrate Exeter’s Diver-City’, Devon Development Education’s 2017 Project

Over the next year, we will be working closely together around the celebration of religious and cultural festivals: Polish Easter, Italian May Festival, Muslim Eid and Hindu Navratri.

We are excited to continue working with our Cultural Champions on Celebrate Exeter’s Diver-City project. In addition we are welcoming new friends into our network, including: Exeter University’s Italian and Polish student societies, and local Polish heritage revivalists, the 307 Squadron Project, also the Hindu temple community, the Mosque and students from the University’s Department of Islamic Studies and Exeter College.

The project will provide a chance to meet new people; to learn about and share in other cultures. We’ll explore heritage and traditions, ask questions, and share our stories with one another. We’ll learn new crafts and skills, and how to cook delicious dishes.

We will be organising a series of community workshops and activities which are open to everyone. We’ll also run learning days with local schools.

Each festival will be marked with a final celebration and community feast, where we will come together to eat and laugh, talk and dance: remembering the rich value of communal practices sidelined by busy modern life.

Celebrate Exeter’s Diver-City is about coming together, as people seek to pull us apart, honouring people’s different identities, and reaffirming Exeter’s identity as a city of welcome and inclusivity.
