People Of Paradise

THEME: Talisman

People of paradise hava been doing hackney carnival for the past 18 years.

We are inner city based group made up of young Hackney residents. Over the past 18 years we have worked hard on building a family as well as a strong community based groups, striving hard to give all our members a second home.

Our organisation gives young, middle aged and old people a place to represent their culture and celebrate their individuality through the arts, fashion and music.

Our theme this year is that of a talisman-a ring or stone that is believed to bring good luck and magic powers. POP believed this to be a relevant theme based on the issues surrounding our young residents in their society and environment. Our aim is to have a magical day without fear, harm or stress, with all involved feeling optimistic about their individual futures and their future with us as a band.
