Culture and Heritage 

Introduction

No matter where we live, people have always struggle for their identity. Culture is one of the most important part of human civilisation which determines the identity. Culture gives the strength of being who we are. Moreover, living with own tradition and cultural norms inherited from our ancestors motivate us to live and provide sense of connectivity. Preserving and sustaining these values and pass them to the new generation is what is our collective responsibility as a community.

This project aims at preserving the cultural heritage of our Nepalese community, celebrating popular cultural festivals in Nottingham, providing knowledge about our communities to the research organisations, individuals and interested groups, and learning new culture of our Karma Bhumi while in Nottingham.
