Culture Chats BC Association Hosted Art & Craft Activity For Children

Diwali Fest originated in 2004 as the Vancouver Celebrates Diwali Festival and has since evolved to become one of the largest Diwali-themed events in the Lower Mainland. What started as a one day, volunteer-driven event has evolved to the point where it is now a professionally staffed festival that has become a destination event on the City’s cultural calendar.

Culture Chats BC Association participated in this festival and hosted an art and craft activity for children on October 23rd, 2022, at the Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Center. Children along with parents and caregivers crafted beautiful paper rockets, diyas and decorative greeting cards. Diwali is a festival of lights. Diyas traditionally light up homes and symbolize the victory of good over evil. During Diwali family and friends come together and celebrate with fireworks, food, and festivities. The decorative crafts by Culture Chats were a beautiful subtle addition in the wonderful work of Diwali Fest that included cultural performances, rangoli and henna body art. Diwali Fest helps Indian diaspora communities keep their culture and traditions alive and helps children learn about the meaning and values behind the traditions from India. Being part of this joyous occasion was therefore meaningful for the team of Culture Chats BC Association.
