Creating an inclusive community through celebration and the joy of bhangra

We are driven by artistic innovation, creating inclusive spaces and strong community bonds.

We see the power of arts and culture to shatter barriers and build meaningful bridges between people. Our work is to engage and to provoke – to reimagine ourselves, our identities and roles in our community.
