The year 2020 will go in history as one of the most challenging years for everybody on this planet. Mother Nature is taking charge in making everyone aware that we should not take everything for granted. We are forced in respecting our environment. We need to think and act differently and responsibly. We have to reshape our daily way of life.
Especially in times like this, where we need the strength and perseverance to overcome this pandemic together, we need to remember and realise the essence of Diwali. We need to see the Light to help us get through these very dark times.
Even though we are not allowed to celebrate this years Almere Diwali together at a central location, we simply can not let this moment pass by silently.
It is therefore that we have chosen to "go digital" this year. On Diwali day itself and with the help of our supporters, sponsors and volunteers, we will launch our Almere Diwali video on 14 november 2020 on our Youtube Channel. Omroep Flevoland, the regional TV channel of province Flevoland, will broadcast a special episode of this year's Almere Diwali on TV.
We will have dance groups showcasing their talents and speakers to address their best wishes to you. We hope this video will create the Diwali feeling that we always have aimed to give you in our passed events.
Almere Diwali is an initiative of Stichting International Festivals Almere
Stichting IFA is a NGO motivated to establish relationships between the international society and the Dutch community in Almere. Almere Diwali is our first step towards our objectives, where we aim to act as facilitator in bringing the mentioned communities together and start building relationships.
Our members, volunteers, partners and sponsors are an integral part of our organization. We recognize their individual contribution to achieve and sustain our mission.
We are always looking for volunteers who supports our vision and would like to help in making this event to a great celebration.
