Watch out for a couple of our artists working on Bright Sparkes at Georgetown on this coming Saturday.
Ken O’Regan and Carolyn McKay are facilitating a lantern-making workshop on Saturday 3 September 2011 for Sparke Street residents.
On the following Saturday 10 September, residents will decorate the street-side exterior of their homes with the lanterns, and the section of Sparke Street between Christo Road and Moate Street will be closed to traffic from 5.30 – 7.30 pm for a street party.
The Bright Sparkes concept was the inspiration of community cultural worker, Brian Joyce, coordinated by Carolyn McKay, artist and recent returnee to the town of her birth, assisted by L!vesites and involving many Sparke Sreet residents.
