Event description

Description

This one - day Conference on Poverty is a catalyst for change as it creates a safe space for well-informed, honest discussion aimed at informing local action.

The conference theme focuses on nurturing rich social capital in the Fermanagh and Omagh District and encouraging collaborative practice. Key note speakers will discuss the impact of the welfare reform and a culture of debt which is on the rise. This will be the first of its kind in our district. Together, we’ll look how ‘Poverty’ impacts our work and the community. The conference also examines regional approaches that impact poverty whilst assessing local issues and experiences.

The Poverty Conference targets community leaders, practitioners, professionals, educators, advocates and political representatives. For members of the public the event will be recorded and promoted on a range of social media platforms to view.

Strule Arts Centre is located right in the heart of Omagh conveniently close to town centre car parks. Strule Arts Centre has designated parking for Blue Badge Scheme users who are attending the venue. To book a Blue Badge space contact Box Office 028 82 247831.
