In 2009, three community associations, Hindu Samaj, Swindon Indian Association and Swindon Tamil associations realised that a partnership was needed to offer multi cultural activities on a regular basis, so they got together to form SAPAC with a distinct aim to provide regular South Asian cultural programmes locally. Since the formation of SAPAC, the three associations have been working in partnership to offer joint cultural performances at a larger scale.
We have arranged two large very successful South Asian cultural events and regularly host larger performances by professional artists.
- The centre offers regular classes in Hindustani classical vocal and Tabla. It also offers dance classes in Bharat Natyam as well as folk dances.
- The centre offers workshops in various classical dances including Kathak and Bharat Natyam, ancient folk traditions like Giddah and contemporary styles popularised by Bollywood cinema.
- The Centre brings well known artists to Swindon to inspire learners and performers.
