EMAN CIC

"Connecting cultures, using diversity as an asset"

Festivals and Events

EMAN started by running activities to promote cultural diversity and skills development at a number of festivals around Essex, including the Essex Jiangsu Festival, Essex One World Festival, Essex Cultural Olympiad, and Chelmsford Housing Partnership Family Fun Days.  We also regularly appear at the Chelmsford Fling Festival each July and celebrations for Black History Month in October, plus many other cultural diversity events all over Essex.



Come and visit us at the EMAN stall, where you can find:


Handmade Gifts

Select from a range of handmade products and ethnic handicrafts, skillfully made by our volunteers.  These include scented hanging decorations and bouquets garnis, jewellery with semi-precious stones, cards for every occasion and ethnic accessories.


Bollywood Boutique

Why not pamper yourself with beauty treatments from the East made with ingredients from a typical South Asian kitchen (rasolil) - massage oil with rosemary and black onion seed, conditioning hair oil, henna preparations.


Dress Cafe

A chance to admire breathtaking embroidery and beautiful clothes from South Asia, as well as the opportunity to dress up "ethnic style" and be photographed for memories!
