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 email@example.com with qualifications or questions. This call will be open until filled, so submit inquires as soon as possible!
