Powers of Festivals Exhibition

The taster exhibition

Brady Arts Centre (May 2012), London Borough of Tower Hamlets 

The 'Powers of Festivals' exhibition is about how festivals are utilised by minorities and native peoples around the world to survive, develop confidence and build their capacities. Arts and cultures are the foundations of festivals. Public celebratory events provide an opportunity for communities to use their own cultural traditions and artistic creativity to showcase their collective achievements, develop internal unity / pride and achieve a more confident engagement with outsiders.

The taster pilot exhibition covered four festivals around the world (Kuta Karnival in Bali, Oruro Festival in Bolivia, Boisabi festival in Bangladesh's Chittagong Hill Tracts and Notting Hill Carnival)
