Masala Mehndi Masti
Masala! Mehndi! Masti!, North America's Largest FREE South Asian Festival which has been held in Toronto (Harbourfront Centre and now the Exhibition Place) for the last 10 years. The festival is multidisciplinary featuring music, dance, film, theatre, fashion, food, workshops and seminars. Since the festival promotes Toronto talent to a great degree, we also love to create fusion performances between communities and the arts. The festival is open to anyone who presents a south asian flavour... It's my pleasure to be involved in a born and bred Toronto entity.
Thoughts about art and community:
It must be all inclusive and make the effort to reach out and invite patrons to collaborate with one another. The synergy should be positive and welcoming in a manner which other Toronto organizations or Neighbourhoods then feel that they can also achieve such goals.
