MAQ Onam 2021
Malayalee Association of Queensland brings to you Onam celebrations on the 12th of September 2021 at the Coorparoo Secondary college between 10 AM and 3 PM. MAQ has a rich and long tradition with a great member base that has evolved with time. In line with QLD government directives on social distancing and hall occupancy, the cultural programs have been suspended. The good news is that we are planning to hold a “Mega Pookalam” with an estimated size of 100 SQM. This is an attempt, a first of its kind and will provide us a platform to experiment and showcase our talents. This will be a team effort for over 80 people with preliminary work starting this week. There will be dedicated teams to create the design, prepare the flowers and turn the Mega Pookalam into a reality. We are excited! The team will get together on the 11th of September to work throughout the day to prepare for the special visual treat in time for our celebrations on the 12th. Our aim is to use this avenue to collaborate with the community, spread the message of Onam and promote Covid awareness. We have also taken this opportunity to team up with the local and state governments to reiterate MAQ’s community commitment.
