ArtReach, working with its partners Mandinga Arts and Jamma de Samba, coordinated and delivered a vibrant carnival procession

Rio Carnival Quest in Bath city centre on Saturday 25th August as part of the Paralympics Flame Event.

Over 150 community participants took part in the costumed parade, with six sections including a special, Wheels for All, contingent of young disabled people on adapted bikes. Many thanks to all those who contributed, and to the thousands of people who came onto the streets to enjoy the procession

Six talented Bath and Bristol based artists worked with ArtReach and Mandinga to help local groups in Bath, Keynsham, Radstock and Peasedown create and animate costumes for the parade, which was themed to the handover of the Olympics baton to Rio for 2016.
