Dalby's Delicious & DeLIGHTful Festival is a multicultural festival held each year in August. The spectacular lantern parade is the festival 's unique point of difference. In 2017 this lantern parade consisted of 700+ little lanterns decorated by children and 20 BIG paper lanterns created in Dalby to the theme of dinosaurs. Dalby Welcoming Community, the organising group is keen to extend the lantern experiences for festival goers.
To assist in develping a new experience for the festival Dalby Welcoming Community is seeking a visual artist to work with the community to create a series of silk lanterns and /or light installations (approx 20) which will form a static light display in contrast to the existing moving lantern parade. It is enviaged there would be a formal lighting of these installations on the night of the festival.
The visual artist would work with the Dalby community in a series of workshops from March to August and would attend the festival and direct the lighting of the static lantern/installation display.
