Community: Mulicultural magic

Consider a calendar, a clock & cultures

Gather together all the multi-cultural festivities/activities/special events/sacred days/major dates etc highlight them on a calendar [that open up with a touch on the date.]

When you highlight the culture you want it opens up with - an overview of the day …. Through further opening a simple clock – and thus that day unfolds [morning, afternoon, evening & late hours]

By using the clock you captivate your audience through real time management of the day

            activities of the children;

            the family interaction, the adults, the visitors, etc

Using modern IT methods I propose audience interaction and participation: highlight what makes that day different from all the others & expands into the background of the day in an enjoyable, educational & celebratory way (the days greetings, the rituals, the meals, the drinks, the songs, the dress, the stories etc)

Brilliantly then connects that group/festivity with activities ongoing in Fingal or in progress in Fingal or under consideration by Fingal Co. Co.

Highlight the cultural connectedness – what lies & binds and what is being forged together to make this event happen on all fronts:

showcase Dublin Airport, ferry, rail, bus, taxi, restaurants, shops, designers, hairdressers, etc

showcase local markets, allotments, dairy farm, whatever is applicable to that day & that group.

            For instance I understand the Polish make 26 fish dishes for the day before Christmas

            [wow, wonder is there some order to the 26 or is it a type of buffet – dispel the ignorance??]

showcase the educational system – u-tube inserts of classroom activities in Finga & say a link to a classroom in the country of origin

showcase the hotels/accommodation/restaurants etc … highlight the conviviality on offer in Fingal

I imagine there is lots of material already in the system that can be pulled together [via libraries, schools, community groups, internet sites, which can be called on with little expense to the County Council]

Make the app hugely entertaining & interlinked through original and revealing tours through their day … on this day the Polish, the Jews and the Latvians celebrate their uniqueness and their sameness…

Project how we are all partners in the present, partners in progress, partners in public and highlight how Fingal Co. Co. are proud to collaborate and celebrates this their special day/event.

Idea: TaxiAngel is the world’s first taxi related app of its kind serving the following 3 purposes: Using data made available by Fingal County Council TaxiAngel provides the user of the locations of all taxi ranks in the Fingal County Council area. Based on the relevant dataset supplied by Fingal County Council all taxis using the Fingal taxi ranks will be supplied with smartphone barcodes for the TaxiAngel scan system. TaxiAngel provides security for passengers as when they sit into the taxi the TaxiAngel app allows them to scan the barcode and store the taxi number, location and time in the TaxiAngel database. This facility also easily enables the passenger to retrieve property left or lost in taxis. Although there are taxi apps in existence none of them solve or even target these 3 major issues. Existing taxi apps facilitate the booking and/or payment of a taxi, but one major flaw in most of them is that they rely on the taxi drivers having the app also.

An iPhone app that allows library members to check and renew their loans. This will give people greater choice and flexibility in how they interact with Fingal County Libraries. An advantage of an iPhone app over, for example, a SMS text based reminder system, means Fingal Libraries does not have to collect and store email addresses or text numbers in order to push information out to their members.
