The Dorset Ethnic Minority Awards (DEMA) is a pioneering community organisation in the honouring, celebration and showcasing the pinnacle of success and philanthropy to the Dorset Community by the Ethnic Minorities within Dorset
We bring communities together to promote social cohesion, promote business across all communities and promote culture.
Our Flag ship event is the DEMA Awards Ceremony and cultural Showcase is a red carpet style event, graced by over 400 influential contacts, businessmen and women, officers, sports personalities, academics as well as key representatives in the entire ethnic community of Dorset.
Last year (2018) at a glamorous and spectacle filled ceremony, DEMA crowned 23 award winners for their amazing contributions and successes which has greatly impacted the ethnic community positively .
Now in its second year, the DEMA awards aim to recognise, celebrate and showcase positive role models and achievements and contributions by ethnic communities within Dorset.
