To help make Barnet even better for those who live, work and study here.
We are in the process of confirming the venue that will be used. We will keep all backers updated! There will be five days of festivities, from 16th to the 20th March 2019, when the following will take place: • Exhibition of the Traditional 'Sofreh-ye-Haft Sin':One widespread tradition is the preparation of a Noruze table, on which a number of symbolic objects are placed. These objects symbolise purity, brightness, abundance, happiness and fertility for the New Year; • Persian food stalls; • Traditional Persian music and dance; • Cultural art and craft displays/sale • Cultural and artistic performances by Persian artists (evenings only). The festivities will also include 'Haji Firooz': a charming fictional folklore character that essentially announces the arrival of Noruze in Iranian culture. Haji Firooz is to Noruze what Santa Clause is to Christmas.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The four day festival of Noruze Celebration in Barnet, will bring the community together by way of three evening of drama performances, traditional dance, exhibition, food stalls and the magnificent traditional Noruze dinner and dance evening event. In recognition of the importance of this ancient rite, Noruze was inscribed on UNESCO’s Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2009. Moreover, in 2010, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 21 March International Noruze Day. Therefore, it would be a great opportunity for the community to experience and learn the true meaning of Noruze. The festival is designed to bring the community together, and will help to showcase and boost art and culture in Barnet.The Festival has had already an overwhelming response with many volunteers coming forward to help make this project real. We at PAB hope that you will share this enthusiasm and make a donation no matter how little towards this project.
Steps to get it done:
This event will also help Farsi speaking children in foster care in Barnet, and their foster carers to meet other Farsi speaking children and act as an introduction to Iranian culture, customs, traditions, food and other aspects of their background and heritage. To strengthen a sense of belonging within their new adopted country. It also will assist the foster carers to meet and socials with Iranian families in the community, and familiarise themselves with the child's Cultural background.
