The Indian Community Centre

The Indian Community Centre is a voluntary organisation which encourages people to learn about all aspects of Indian culture.. Its community development and outreach programmes promote integration between the Indian community and the wider community.

What we do

  • Anti-racism and culture awareness training. We produce an information pack about Indian tradition and culture which is available to order from the Centre’s office.
  • Visit schools and youth groups to explain about Indian culture and teach Indian dance.
  • Interpreting, immigration and education advice.
  • Offer a diverse arts and culture program which includes dancing, crafts and cooking the Indian way.
  • Organise multicultural days, festivals and shows which promote Indian culture.

Examples of our work

  • We organised Belfast Mela 2004 in Botanic Gardens in August which was an extravaganza of colour, dance, food and crafts that all communities loved.
  • We were invited to give a series of workshops in Little Flower School about henna painting and Indian crafts. Pupils were able to get involved in and then show off their new skills at home.
