“Reaching to the past to create the future”
A Mayo North East Case Study
This is a video case study highlighting how supports from the Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme 2018-2022 (SICAP) has made a difference to the Michael Davitt Museum in Straide, Co Mayo. The approach adapted by Mayo North East is based on the concept of Socio-Cultural Animation. The museum is managed by a voluntary board of Directors and receives staffing support from Mayo North East through Community Employment. The Department of Rural and Community Development also provide a contribution towards the employment for a full-time Curator.
