WHO WE ARE

Cabasa is a carnival arts organisation which brings all people together to create big, bold and beautiful outdoor events that capture the joy of being part of a community. Cabasa uses arts and creativity to enable people to learn new skills, develop high-quality work they feel proud of, bring communities together and explore diverse community traditions.

We want to see a world in which everyone has access to creative opportunities through Carnival.

Based in Tameside (UK), Cabasa has been delivering high-quality Carnival creations in the North-West and beyond for the past 10 years.
