Light creates life, makes things grow, many world cultures celebrate light, and the celebration of light is an affirmation of life and human experience. In winter when days are short, cultures across the world have a festival related to light such as Diwali aka Festival of Lights. Regardless of an individual’s faith, light is the source of their life.
We plan to have holistic, wellness and mindful vendors demonstrating how to live your lightest life in the most fun way possible. We also plan to have performances from dancers, bands, buskers, the highly praised shadow theatre and many, many more. Local business owners have been invited to sell holistic products and traditional cuisine for you to enjoy.
What we'll deliver:
- Deliver a fun, spectacular family event in October 2019
- Encourage integration between various communities through sharing the best of indian culture
- Education on how to make the most of ones life by encouraging inclusion, and workshops focusing on health and wellbeing
Why it's a great idea:
We know from last years experience that the event was well-received, encouraging participation from over 2500 visitors from the wider community who came together and celebrated and learnt about the Indian culture.
We have plans to improve on last year, with the extra space and finish the afternoon with a Light parade, where we have invited various groups to take part, including schools, charity groups, and we welcome anyone wishing to take part.
Steps to get it done:
- Hire of stage, sound and lighting system
- Hire of show stopping closing ceromony
The project aims to be inclusive of all, in particular we work closely with BUDS who guide/advise us on making the event Fair4All encouraging independence for individuals with disabilities
