Preston City Mela Outreach Programme The Harris Museum, Art Gallery and Library
The final outreach session of the Preston Mela programme for 2019 took place in The Harris Museum, Art Gallery and Library on the first floor.
The workshops were taster sessions leading up to the Mela main event and it gave visitors the opportunity to try out some of the activities. This was mainly a family orientated event as it captures people involved who were just visiting the library and took part in the Mela activity.
