Aarohan – Sammilani 2016

Our national gathering every biennial!!


Every biennial, the Odia community of Australia meet to recreate the biggest Odia “khatti” in the southern hemisphere .  This has been a tradition since 2003.  We call it Sammilani.  And the name of the 2016 Sammilani is AAROHANA.  The Odia community of Qld has a chance to host this national event after 10 years!!

Under the auspices of Orioz Inc, the Association of Odias in Australia, these national gatherings provide the much needed opportunity for the members of the Odia community across Australia to come together and re-energise their bonding over sharing in-house talents in Odia art and culture. 

AAROHANA is scheduled to be held on 25-27 March 2016 at the Maroochy Waterfront Camp and Conference Centre, Sunshine Coast, Queensland.
