Sharing Celebrations is a fun-filled project with exciting events based around diverse communities communally celebrating festivals. Festivals embody the spirit of celebration, positivity and goodwill, bringing together families, friends, neighbours, colleagues at work, young and old, even strangers in the street or the park! They easily break barriers created by differences in race, religion, language and nationality, by encouraging dialogue, interaction, helping people connect with their happier, playful selves.
In Derby, we have diverse communities from around the world that celebrate various festivals and popular days. So far we have celebrated Diwali, Christmas, Easter and Eid. Celebration events and activities encourage participants to take ownership of the neighbourhood, creating a sense of belonging, adding to the richness of life in Derby.
