Mela literally means a ‘festival of togetherness’ and is always vibrant, inclusive and entertaining. It showcases all aspects of culture and tradition across the region.

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

Breaking down barriers & strengthening communities

It is a powerful force to breakdown barriers and strengthen communities while creating a springboard for further exploration. We hope it will encourage you all to explore further what the south asian community and its rich heritage have to offer.
