Indians are the largest ethnic minority in the UK. The aim in this project is to create a modern fusion of Indian culture because nowadays communities are forgetting the pride of this beautiful culture.
The programme proposes the construction of a Community Centre based on Indian culture such as; street food and classical dance, these elements are the largest sources that gives India its identity. Based on these elements, the program proposes evening dance performances on stage, dance practise lessons and a food market with three food shops and a bar. It focuses on the famous street foods to enjoy the real flavours of India. The stage area can be used for different functions, like marriages, birthday parties and other celebrations bringing the community closer. This project aims to serve as a catalyst facilitator in promoting interaction among two different cultures and having a deeper understanding of Indian culture through music, dance and food.
