Parramatta. Links to South Asia

The inaugural Australian Festival of South Asian Arts, a major new event in Parramatta, to be known as Parramasala, will include business activities linking Parramatta and South Asia. Parramatta City Council will be involved in a committee, which is formulating plans for the festival to be held in the city from November 4-10. The festival is a joint initiative between Events NSW, council and the state government. With a budget of $6 million over three years, Parramasala will initially focus on India in 2010, expanding into a two-week program, in 2011, reflecting the cultures of the South Asian region – Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, the Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
