Jaya Sharma

    Jaya Sharma, former executive producer of Hindi Program on SBS Radio, Melbourne, creates magic with words. She has entertained, informed and connected the local and national community with her homeland for over two decades. Apart from being involved in other community and charitable projects, Sharma is the creative head of Celebrate India Inc., a not-for-profit organisation responsible for organising the largest Diwali celebrations in Australia at Federation Square. For seven years, thousands of travellers enjoyed her beautiful Temple installation for Diwali at Melbourne Airport, the first of its kind anywhere in the world. Her most recent project involved the creation of a large Rangoli (floor art) at Federation Square for Diwali 2016. This unique project was designed to use only fruit and vegetables which were then donated to the Food for Life program.
