Lowell’s Points of Light Cultural Celebration Committee is planning a special Lowell Cultural Lantern Walk to complement our traditional wish lantern launch. Our goal is to provide materials and/or a stipend to community groups that would each produce a large, intricately-decorated lantern inspired by their culture or history. These lanterns would be secured on pedestals on the festival grounds the night of the festival. The lanterns should be weather-proof as they will be installed outdoors.

The Committee is seeking someone familiar with using fabric and frames to create shaped lanterns to assist developing the program. This includes:

  • Helping develop the vision and specifications for the installation
  • Identifying appropriate materials that could be used by community groups
  • Sourcing materials
  • Estimating costs
  • Writing instructions that could be provided to community groups

We are not currently seeking an artist or fabricator to make lanterns—just to help us develop the program. A stipend would be provided commensurate with the time involved and level of experience of the artist or fabricator.

If interested, please contact Chris at with qualifications or questions. This call will be open until filled, so submit inquires as soon as possible!
