Our Mission

Our mission is to create and coordinate a carnival in Sheffield.  A free, family friendly inclusive event incorporating vibrant costumes, a street parade, music, food and cultural activities which reflects the diverse range of international cultures within the city.

Aims

We aim to:

  • Increase access to and participation in carnival arts
  • Nurture interest in the diverse cultural heritage of carnival
  • Bring the community together by providing a conduit to promote community cohesion.
  • Strive for excellence in the development of skills and knowledge of carnival arts

 

We will accomplish this by

  • Developing strategic partnerships with local arts and culture organisations to develop their skills and knowledge of carnival arts enabling them to promote and sustain carnival artist skills
  • Engaging with the local community, schools, colleges and universities to increase access to and participation in carnival arts in order to develop and showcase local skills and talent
  • Encouraging participation of people both young and old, from a range of diverse backgrounds to get involved in carnival activities and express themselves through the medium of carnival arts, in order to foster community cohesion
  • Share, celebrate and promote the heritage and culture of carnival in order to engage and excite diverse audiences and participants
