Mela is...
A spirit of abundance

about breaking down barriers
about bringing generations together
about feeling happiness and joy
sharing our values
Learning from each other
a feast for the senses
Eating, drinking and laughing together
a voice for the community
about giving and receiving
learning from each other
a celebration of culture and heritage
