Victoria Park Lantern Festival

The Art Part

Putting Art in Community & Community in Art

Our festival spills into the greater community, through public art installations at local restaurants (The Sprout in 2010, the Rocket in 2011); through outreach workshops at the Anna Templeton Centre, the Eastern Edge Art Gallery and the Association for New Canadians; and through participation in other public art projects, such as the Newfoundland and Labrador Folk Festival each summer in Bannerman Park and the Christmastime Mummers’ Festival in the adjacent Georgestown-Belvedere neighbourhood. We’ve also reached out to pass on lantern-building skills to other communities as far away as Arctic Canada.
