Celebrating South Asian Heritage Month in Camden
This month marks South Asian Heritage Month. From 18 July, the date that the Indian Independence Act 1947 gained Royal Assent, to 17 August, Partition Commemoration Day, the Borough of Camden will join the country in celebrating our many South Asian communities.
The month is an opportunity to honour, recognise, and appreciate the rich history and cultural legacy of South Asia and its constituent countries, including Afghanistan, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan, and the Maldives.
During the celebratory month, the Council will host a range of events, activities, and initiatives that highlight the vibrant traditions, arts, cuisines, and contributions of the South Asian community. The aim is to educate, inspire and promote an appreciation and a better understanding of the diversity of Camden.
