October to December 2017
In collaboration with visual artist and designer Caroline Cleave, and artists Clare Summerson, Reg Payn and Pete Cole from the ARTiculate collective, Really Lovely Projects produced a series of creative community events and a 'Switch On' celebration for the rural fishing village of Port Isaac.
Emma Mansfield and Roger Luxton ran composition and singing workshops with Wadebridge and Port Isaac Primary schools and The Gulls and Port Isaac Chorale adult choirs.
Pete Cole and Clare Summerson created an Angel inspired animation sequence with local school children and all of the community were invited to get together in a free workshop to make angel lanterns.
On Friday 1st December, the entire village was illuminated with a parade of angels and giant angel lantern, which processed from Port Isaac Community Primary school to the Platt on the harbour.
Joined by St Minver Town Band, the community choirs and children sang together their very own Angel anthem and the whole village vocalised the Christmas Lights count down.
This was the first large-scale winter event the community had experienced and plans are afoot to continue the community engagement activities and procession in 2017.
