Welcome to the new Spirit of Carnival website!

Spirit of Carnival is a voluntary multi-cultural community arts project based in Norwich.  Launched in the year 2000 Spirit of Carnival encourages community participation and broadens cultural understanding through the promotion of carnival arts.  We seek to enable individuals and groups to learn new skills and share experiences through the development of carnival arts workshops and events.

Spirit of Carnival works in partnership with a wide range of statutory and voluntary organisations including Norwich City Council, Norfolk County Council, Norfolk and Norwich Festival, NORCA, South Norfolk District Council, NEAD, The Forum Trust, Bayer Crop Science and SeaChange Arts Great Yarmouth.

Spirit of Carnival has received funding from, amongst others, National Lottery Awards for All, Norfolk Community Foundation, Norwich City Council and Norfolk County Council.  We are currently looking for funding for our next big event planned for 2012, if you would like to support us with funding or sponsorship please contact us – we would love to talk to you!
