It will be three years since we started celebrating Deepavali in the RAW Garden and every year, those of us who were not raised with this tradition, learn a little more through story.
We thank Durgah Devi Palanisamy for facilitating our gatherings throughout the year and friends, Fionnuala Smyth and Daniela Bücheler-Scott who have also held the story space. And of course we thank Mariam Issa who invited us into the Garden all those years ago.
Gatherings will resume in February 2019 and Daniela and Dee are working on a plan for the year. No doubt that will include International Women's Day in March and rumour has it, there maybe some special guests.
A huge shout out to Tatiana who has documented so many of our gatherings. Her glorious photographs are enjoyed by all. Tatiana has also photographed several of our storytellers for their publicity and websites. Visit Tatiana's website HERE.
RAW events are hosted on the first Sunday of the month, beginning in February and running through to November.
We create the events on our Facebook but for those of you who are not on Fb, we post reminders on this blog and you can always check in on our website calendar.
We look forward to seeing the regulars the garden in 2019 and greeting new faces.
