About the Event
The Cork Indian Summer is a day long event filled with colour, culture and fun from India. This inter-cultural event will give a bazaar-like experience for everyone and will be a great day out for all the family
About The Organisers
I am Joanna and I have only lived in Cork for a year, but with a few new friends (Keira, Gopi, Jazz, Anjali and Atul), we are working hard to make this event a reality. We come from different backgrounds and really believe that this event will strengthen the diverse relationships in our city. A whole day of Indo-Irish themed entertainment will help everyone learn a bit more about each other and respect different cultures. Cork is a vibrant city and hosts different types of art and cultural annual events and this celebratory event will add to its rich tapestry. We hope we can spread our enthusiasm through the Fund it platform not just in Ireland but to well wishers from far and wide.
A Preview of the Lineup
We will begin the day with yoga and sound healing meditation. The Camden Palace is a great venue with big rooms to enjoy this ancient practice. Next, we will have sari demonstrations and Bollywood dance workshops. The Bazaar will be set up in the Ballroom area filled with different types of stalls such as palm reading, henna tattoos, food, art and craft, jewellery and much much more. The live performances will not only take the audience on a colourful journey of India’s culture but also include a showcase of Indo-Irish collaborations. So far we have a sitar-tabla recital, classical dances, martial art show cases and an Indian puppet show. We will keep you updated as we go along. The main attractions are playing Holi and the screening of a Bollywood movie.
Why We Need Your Help
The Bazaar has had lots of goodwill, but we need your support to ensure that this event is a memorable experience. Your pledge will go towards materials for the event and will make a big difference. We believe that this event will give the community a great reason to come out and have fun on a multi-cultural platform .
In Aid of Charity
A Photography Exhibition of photos taken by Indian street children will be held on the day in support of the Edith Wilkins Foundation. If we make any profits, they go to SERVE who work with different partners in Bangalore and Kerala in India.
We are all volunteering our time for this event but it really means the world to us to create this event in the spirit of unity in diversity. We thank you in advance for your support, express our eternal gratitude and hope to see you on June 8th 2013 at Camden Palace Hotel. Come Play Holi with us.....
