The aim of this project is to introduce culinary arts education to under-represented groups in Galway city. The project involves a collaboration between Galway International Hotel School (GIHS) and ATU Access Office.
Students from under-represented groups will be invited to take part in a series of pastry workshops in the GIHS. The culinary arts student partners will act as mentors. In undertaking this project, it is expected the student mentors will become more civic-minded, and show students from diverse socio-economic backgrounds how enjoyable and accessible higher education is, within a culinary arts context.
It is hoped that this project will empower some of the students to consider applying to higher education providers in the future, thus commencing the process of developing sustainable communities.
