A brave new step for the Mela

I went to the launch of the 2008 Edinburgh Mela's programme today. Made my heart sign!. The Mela is a true celebration of celebration of diversity and difference

The programme (biggest ever) will speak for itself and the new waterfront venue will be a great improvement, but I just wanted to say that the New director, Liam Sinclair got it right today when he finished his introduction to the programme when he said words to the effect of, "in a world where we are sometimes scared to highlight difference, the Mela helps us understand that difference can teach us our common bonds"
