My hopes for this network are that we as a collective community of creative and skilled people can create a collaborative space where we develop projects that enhance the lives of others in Limerick. We as a network are committed to raising awareness of issues as advocates, providing the space for conversation and dialogue to learn from one another and to give back to the community that we reside in whilst celebrating and sharing our diverse cultures.
