On October 14th, 2016, Festival MOSAIC will again be taking place at the Roundhouse Community Arts and Recreation Centre! This magical evening of dance, activity and food will begin at 6pm. You will walk into the room to the sounds of Middle Eastern and Western rhythms fused together with finesse to create contemporary experimental music. If the sounds alone don’t mesmerize you check out the roaming circus entertainers, try the delectable treats!
This year’s vibrant event will showcase DJBFAD, Katari Taiko Drum Group, Kiss of Africa, Circus West, and the Eagle Song Dancers and local musicians. Guests will enjoy hands on activities, from creating poetry to filling in a rangoli, to experiencing first hand the journey of a refugee. There is something for everyone! To complement this evening of art and entertainment will be delicious samplings of food inspired by Italian, Latin American, and Asian flavours.
MOSAIC will also be celebrating its 40th anniversary of serving new immigrants and refugees at Festival MOSAIC! Join the celebration – Purchase your tickets or table now!
