In the lead up to Diwali, IHWO and Workbridge embarked on a joint project to mark the coming of Diwali…With a design and plan in place the Workbridge team fired up production of 500 Diya’s – small clay lamps to hold tealight candles in…

As fast as Workbridge were producing the Diya’s, members of the Hindu community were engaged in painting and decorating them…all who participated in the painting and decorating expressed how much they enjoyed the experience….and are already looking forward to doing it again next year!!!

The beautifully decorated diyas were used as gifts for dignitaries, performers during the Diwali event on 10th November, and a number were used for cultural workshops and Rangoli pattern displays.

A stall offering Diya painting and decorating proved to be one of the popular stalls at the Diwali event….
