Steampunk India and Clockwork Watch Collaboration at Greenwich:

 

The Steampunk Summer Fete, organised and directed by Yomi Ayeni, in honour of the 300th celebration of the Longitude Act was held at The Queen’s House Museum at the bottom of The Royal Observatory in Greenwich.

All-day interactive events on the 3rd of August merged the Longitude Punk'd Exhibition, still viewable at the Observatory, with fictional Steampunk characters who engaged the public during guided tours.

The King’s Bedchamber was occupied that day by Tinku Ranbir of The Clockwork Watch comics. The Clockwork Watch Transmedia project has incorporated diverse characters from its very inception and Yomi Ayeni and his fellow creators of The Clockwork Watch received a San Diego Comic Con 2014 Starburner Award for services to Steampunk.

To complete the MultiCultural inclusion at the event, Sunday Driver performed several music sets on the lawn.

February 2014 saw the birth of the Steampunk Hands Around the World project, an initiative by Kevin D. Steil aka The Airship Ambassador. The aim was to connect with as many Steampunks in as many different countries across the planet as possible, making Steampunk a truly global, multicultural affair.

And this video, originally created for Eurosteamcon Barcelona 2013, but relaunched for Steampunk Hands as it is  extremely pertinent to the subject of inclusion, global connections and multicultural equality:
