A Mega Mela Weekend in pictures

Our biggest Arts Village to date took over a section of Victoria Park at last weekend’s Ola Sandwell & Birmingham Mela and we had a great time in Smethwick.

Thank you to everyone that helped create the beautiful peacock mosaic with Claire, watched the amazing artwork unfold by Joe Miles, produced lovely prints, made modroc sculptures, tried their hand at Indian chumki making, and even got 3D cloned and printed.

We had contemporary and traditional dance styles as well as beautiful music from The Rajasthan Heritage Brass Band (supported by Birmingham Hippodrome).

Thank you to all of the great performers and artists that joined us on Saturday and Sunday to bring such a wonderfully colourful and creative day to the mela.

Thanks to Shine Duggal, Parminder Dosanjh and the Birmingham Mela team for the photos.
