Pakistan Cultural Society
The Pakistan Cultural Society (PCS), founded in 1993, aimed to provide an intercultural forum to promote South Asian traditional and contemporary arts and culture in the North East of England.
During its long history, PCS managed to break down cultural barriers by bringing together diverse audiences and participants as a passionate exponent of arts and culture. For its work in this area PCS received a Voluntary Sector Council award in 2008.
Its rich cultural events include the core Annual Festivals of Eid, Mela, Pakistan Independence Day, Mushaira (Multilingual live poetry). PCS also established educational workshops and activities aimed at those who were isolated or socially excluded, as well as advice, advocacy and consultancy.
