Join an event that just keeps growing year on year. Belfast Mela (meaning ‘meet’) was launched in 2007 by the critically acclaimed and pioneering ArtsEkta organisation in a bid to showcase and celebrate Northern Ireland’s increasing cultural diversity.
Mela is a Sanskrit word meaning ‘to meet’. It is used in the Indian subcontinent for all sizes of gathering and can be religious, commercial, cultural or sports.
Today the project has grown beyond all original expectations and Belfast Mela is not only celebrating world diversity but is taking its place as one of the province’s hottest, fastest growing tourist attractions.
The Mela returns to Belfast on the 27th August 2017.
