Mela Making – Community Takeover at JHG

Mela Making

June 2019

John Hansard Gallery, 142–144 Above Bar Street

In June we celebrated the vibrancy of the Southampton Mela Festival in this colourful display of costumes, saris, musical instruments and photographs. Over 100 people dropped in to develop new skills in designing and making large scale banners which were displayed at the next Mela on Saturday 13 July in Hoglands Park.

Art Asia showcases the rich vitality of South Asian Arts to audiences across the South East region. They founded the Southampton Mela Festival in 2001, which attracts over 25,000 people each year to enjoy, be inspired and surprised by community talent, emerging and established artists and performers.
