Community is at the very heart of Carnival. At Cabasa Carnival Arts, our dedicated team work to engage community groups in the delivery of exciting, creative projects, informed by a diverse range of cultural traditions and practices. We enable artists and communities to work together through costume, dance, percussion and theatre to transform the streets into a stage.


Volunteer Performers Needed for The Great Garden Carnival at Manchester Pride 2016


We’re back at Pride this year, hitting the streets of Manchester with our vibrant Great Garden Carnival and collaborating once again with our friends Juba do Leão. We’re with the fantastic Unison again this year. Last year UNISON North West LGBT Group won the Best Parade entry!

We’re looking for volunteer performers to wear our large butterfly wings and flower dresses. This is a fantastic event and a great opportunity to get experience in outdoor arts. This may also lead onto further performance opportunities with us at future events around the UK. Contact us for more information.
