Thank you!

Thank you to the Lobethal community and the illuminart team, who have been involved in the Illuminart projects at the Lights of Lobethal festival in 2010 and 2009. These window projections, lantern displays and other projects were made possible through support of artists and artsworkers, local people, businesses, funding organisations, friends, and family, were complex and challenging, and ultimately have been successful and widely appreciated by visitors and locals alike.

Our thanks goes to everyone who participated in ensuring that the projects were successful, and in particular we thank those who provided extraordinary service and support to ensure that we overcame the obstacles that arose along the way.
