The exhibition being launched tomorrow will run for two weeks at Dublin’s Civic Offices before moving to other venues.  Full details of the exhibition schedule will be announced during tomorrow’s launch.Commenting in advance, Garrett Mullan, Executive Director of Show Racism the Red Card, said: “The purpose of this exhibition is to recognise the work of schools, youth services and young people in their efforts to promote inclusion and oppose racism. We hope it will also inspire others to be involved in promoting the anti-racism education message.  We have designed the exhibition in a way that makes it mobile and easy to transfer from venue to venue, so it will be available to see in a number of different locations over the coming months.”
