The Bhangra Project is an ongoing activity aimed to engage young people in bhangra culture.

In 2008-2009 it went through an intense year-long development phase that celebrated and explored bhangra culture through performances, exhibitions, new commissions, public talks and debates, and art workshops. In total, over 1500 participants from schools, community groups and the general public came together to experience bhangra drumming and dance for themselves, often for the first time.

Since then, we have continued to produce bhangra events at schools and festivals. Most recently we went to Writhlington School in Bath, where 45 students participated in a series of workshops and then took part in a performance for 300 students from seven different local schools, with bhangra band 4×4.

If you are interested in a series of workshops for local schools, designed to introduce children and young people to bhangra art forms and to help them develop their creative skills, please get in touch!
