Dragons Cultural Arts' mission is to educate, empower and entertain people from any background and any age. We aim to promote community cohesion through the provision of carnival, street and theatrical arts.
We want to inspire young artists and recognise the diversity of artistic excellence in Great Britain. Educating on carnival arts, mas production as well as the history of carnival is important to us. Not only do we want to instil confidence in the artists and artisans but we want to encourage confidence in playing mas at carnival so that more people can get involved.
We recognise that we live in a city enriched with various cultures and backgrounds from all over the world and our work reaches out to combine that predominantly with the carnival arts originating from the Caribbean.
Dragons Cultural Arts is passionate about carnival and wants to share that with all so that they can experience the freedom and spectacle that is playing mas (wearing costume) at various carnivals, including Notting Hill Carnival where we as a mas band, provide an ultimate package and experience like no other, whilst being entertained by the street theatrical arts as well as music from top DJs playing the best in soca.
We encourage and provide a friendly and safe environment for all ages to enjoy and participate in carnival. For more information on how to participate in Notting Hill Carnival, please click here.
