The Indian Community

Date: Monday 29th March

Time: 12 noon – 1.00pm

The Culture Café events celebrate the diversity of multi-cultural Belfast.  The events focus on minority communities across the city and promote respect and understanding of these cultures.  Each Culture Café will focus on a different culture and their contribution to Belfast’s history.  We are delighted that our first three events will focus on the Indian, Polish, and Chinese communities.

During our first Culture Café we will learn about the role of the Indian community within Belfast.  The Indian Community Centre Belfast will also discuss their journey to Belfast, integration into the city and their contribution to the wider Belfast community.

The event will take place at the same time as the Indian Festival of Colours, known as Holi. The Belfast Indian community will reflect on cultural traditions, significance and how they celebrate the festival.  We will see a performance showcase of Indian dance by the South Asian Dance Academy and see a demonstration of Rangoli art – a popular Indian folk art used during cultural celebrations and hear about their community engagement and the future.
