Lights of Lobethal

The Lights of Lobethal Festival and illuminart worked together over two years, 2009 and 2010.

In 2009 this collaboration produced a stunning projection show Deck the Hall, an audiovisual illumination of the beautiful Centennial Hall in the Main Street of Lobethal. The images for this presentation were inspired by suggestions by the local community.

A second display was a grove of LED illuminated lantern sculptures powered by Solar energy, created by community members in workshops.

In 2010 The Lights of Lobethal and illuminart got together again to create exciting new projects for the festival, that ranged from window projection displays inspired by Lobethal history, a light trail that featured hand made lanterns, solar powered displays, giant lanterns, and workshops where people could make their own lanterns to take home using bike-powered sewing machines.

The highlights of Illuminart’s projects were Window Projections, a bike powered Lantern Makers Stall, Lobethal Lanterns, Giant Lanterns, and Solar Grove Sites.

These  projects were assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body, by Festivals Australia, the Lights of Lobethal Festival, and sponsorship from Illuminart and business partners.


Thank you for your skills and talents in the 2009 Lights of Lobethal Festival. The Deck the Hall and the Solar Grove has kept the lights 'fresh'. I look forward to participating in exciting lights with you next year.
