Preston City Mela contributed to the University of Central Lancashire week-long programme of promoting diversity inclusion across the whole organisation. The Mela input took place on the carnival event held on the 20th of March at which we provided four workshops 2 on Henna, rangoli and Indian block printing. We also provided a Bollywood dance performance which included audience participation session. The event was targeted at students, staff and the community.
This was our first collaborative event with UCLan and based on our involvement we will strongly consider including this within our annual Mela outreach programme from 2020 and beyond
