The Lantern Project is a place of welcome, learning and inclusion providing a safe place for people to learn and grow, develop new skills, meet others and make new friends. Community education and creativity are the cornerstones of the centre focussing particularly on self-development, well-being and improving self-awareness. Lantern courses use a range of holistic approaches that aim to promote and enhance self-esteem and personal development.
The Lantern has two main strands of work – community development and community education. All programmes are designed to be inclusive, accessible, relevant and most importantly – participant led. Time spent attending Lantern activities allows people to take small steps, make new connections whilst reflecting on what supports their well-being.
The Lantern Project offers a signposting service that allows each participant an opportunity to explore & enhance their own wellbeing journey. The aim is to allow people the freedom to engage with others in the Lantern community in a non-judgemental, relaxed and friendly and social environment.
Since the transition of the Lantern and Cork Migrant Projects to the refurbished Ministry Building in Nano Nagle Place in 2018 there has also been a focus on exploring the synergies between these projects strengthening this partnership whilst further fostering a culture of diversity and inclusion.
