September to November 2014
Articulate and Lovely Projects were commissioned by Bodmin Christmas Lights Committee to create a community event, involvinglocal primary schools and Bodmin College students, that celebrated the switch on of the Christmas Lights.
As a collective of artists and music leaders, we devised a schools programme of lantern making and singing as well as cellophane, stained glass window activities to animate 128 window panes at Bodmin Shire Hall. Art students from Bodmin College created three giant star lanterns and we offered a community lantern making day at Bodmin’s BCA rooms.
The project culminated in a community procession, finale song and carol service with Lost in Song, members of Bodmin Community Choir, Bodmin Brass Band and Bodmin College Jazz Band. Over 200 young people took part performing to an audience of over 800 people.
The lanterns and community song 'Wonder' by Emilie Sante, then featured in Lostwithiel as part of the town’s Dickensian Night celebrations.
