A few words about us

Our extensive Workshop Programme and Festival provides a multitude of arts opportunities every year. These include:

Local school kids designing and making lanterns for the event; Local artists constructing giant lanterns and mentoring young locals; and community exposure to artistic endeavours through workshops and music.

The festival day (usually in August)takes place from the late afternoon to the evening and culminates in a massive paper lantern display, picturesque dusk candle/lantern lighting and a fire mural lighting up the night sky.
