St Paul's Carnival Documentation Project

On Saturday 4th July 2009 UNITY took a group of volunteers to the St Paul's carnival to document this colourful celebration of diverse local culture. Young people photographed the parade and interviewed community leaders and members of the general public to gain an impression of what makes this such a special event.
