From traditional events such as Diwali to the recent Notting Hill Carnival, the UK, in particular London, is a cultural hub and the setting for a number of events that celebrate diversity in a country were nearly a quarter of its population is of an ethnic background.
The summer of 2015 has been one filled with such events, including a number of Melas that we were delighted to take part in, on behalf of Elephant Atta. But have no fear, there are still plenty more to come before the year is up and Mediareach is here to tell you all about them.
Next month the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) will host ‘The Fabric of India’ exhibition, as part of the Museum’s India Festival. The exhibition will be the first major one of its kind to explore the world of handmade textiles from India from the 3rd to 21st century. The event will be held from the 3rd October till the 10th January.
Also in October, the British Library will be holding the ‘West Africa: Word, Symbol, Song’ exhibition. The exhibition will highlight stories from the regions nations and show how West Africans have harnessed the power of words to build societies, political movements and main religious beliefs.
