Trail of Lights Festival, Truganinna (2019)

In partnership with Little Projector Company, Sanctum Theatre produces Light & Lantern Festivals and Events throughout Victoria and Australia – incorporating projection, lantern installation and parades, illuminated sculpture and light-based roaming acts.


Trail of Lights Festival, Trugannina (2019)

In 2019 Sanctum Theatre partnered with Little Projector Company and Williams Landing Residents Association to present Trail of Lights Festival, a community-led light & lantern festival  along the Federation Trail in Williams Landing and Truganina, Victoria, Australia.

The 5-day festival program included illuminated roving acts, lantern workshops, installations by Wyndham artists and decorative lighting by the local community. Sanctum Studio worked with 200 children to build 50 large sculptural lanterns for the parade, which were then installed along the trail. (Photos by Imran Abul Kashem and Welcome to Point Cook.)

In 2013 and 2014 Sanctum Studio worked with local families at the Eltham Living and Learning Centre to create several giant sculptural lanterns for Montsalvat Solstice Celebration and Bonfire, presented by Festive Fires. (Photos by Field of Vision Photography.)
