Major multicultural event to take place in Bangor

Encompassing World Culture will be held at the Main Arts building, College Road, Bangor on Saturday 30 November from 10 am to 11pm in Powis and PJ Halls.

The event is organised by Colwyn Bay based NWAMI, North Wales Association for Multicultural Integration in association with Bangor University and Bangor City Council with the active support of a number of local organisations.

The days programme has attracted a high profile guest list including David Jones MP, PC. Secretary of State for Wales, The Lord Lieutenant of Gwynedd and the High Sheriff of Gwynedd.

Following a reception by Professor John Hughes the Vice Chancellor of Bangor University for invited guests at 10 am. The days activities will be preceded by a Mace Bearing procession of The Mayor of Bangor, Cllr Percival Madge, and other local Mayors, led by the Vice Chancellor to PJ Hall where the proceedings will be opened by David Jones MP, PC

Cllr Dr Sibani Roy Founder and Chairman of the festival organisers, NWAMI, said

The original idea for this event came from our Go Wales volunteers Ionna Skoura and Simon Savill and has really grown from there. We have attracted support from the City Council, the University and a wide range of organisations and individuals throughout North Wales and beyond.

With the help of our associates, sponsors, The Arts Council of Wales, Gwynedd County Council, the Unite Trade Union and other supporters we have put together a stimulating programme of cultural engagement that will capture the imagination and interest of most.

We are bringing together people from all over the world, dancers, musicians, speakers in a festival of cultural exchange through performances and workshops, including an international cookery demonstration by staff and students of Colege Menai and demonstrations of the oriental arts of origami and Kite Making and Calligraphy by Confucious Institute and Trinity Foundation.

The festival will feature what is guaranteed to be an electrifying performance by African Band and African Dance Theatre Company Ballet Nimba. Performances by Classical Indian Dancer Suchismita Ganguli and Welsh singer and guitarist Lowri M. Jones, Welsh dance group lead by Mrs Mary Parry will also be certain to captivate the audience.

Besides artistic performances, there will be a speakers session in the morning opened by Mark Isherwood AM and chaired by Hwyel Williams MP.

We think that this is a very exciting programme that would not be able to proceed with out the support of The Arts Council of Wales and the work that they do in making Arts and Culture accessible to increasing numbers of people.
