Bus advertising does work. Today I saw a poster in a 67 for Dublin Mela, a celebration of Indian culture in the style of Indian fairs. Organised by the non-profit Unitas, an organisation of the Indian diaspora living in Ireland, focusing on 'integration through sports, arts and culture', the Mela will take place from 15 to 19 August. The website promises films, sports, arts and food.
The main Mela day will be Saturday 18 August in Corkagh Park in Clondalkin, 12 - 6 pm, with free entry. Elsewhere, an art exhibition will be held in Trinity College's Buttery, 16-21 August, and a Bharatnatyam dance workshop at Chester Beatty Library on Sunday 19 August, 1 - 2 pm (free, but must be booked in advance through the Chester Beatty's website).
