Thursday 11th August: Notting Hill Carnival 2016, Mas - Sunshine International Arts

Following last year's theme of "Oil Slick" , Sunshine International Arts have shed the black tarred feathers and grown new wings of multi-colour mas-colour spectrums for "all Ah We IS oNE".

"After all the struggles and strife of war.... we leave it behind us and sail to a better future filled with love, hope, peace and unity.....
Our faces reflect all emotion and all colours.  We are not of one colour but are mixed.
No Black!  No White!  No yellow!  No Red!
No distinguishable colour forces itself to the forefront.
Our people are colour bright and beautiful.   A rainbow of love.
Live and let live - all Ah We IS oNE.  All Ah We share one pure unadulterated heart!"

Here you can see hints and details of the large scale face costumes which will indicate the message of "hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil".  All of this preperation will come together as full looks complete with trimmed accessories on bank holiday weekend.  Keep your eye out for the rainbow in amongst the parade and remember it's the award-winning Sunshine Arts International.......... or get involved with a hands-on experience of helping make the costumes at their events schedule here.
