The Nyngan Community Hub are looking for expressions of interest in a workshop to create lanterns, which will feature in Dubbo’s Dream Festival Parade later this year. 

The lantern making workshop, with 75 spots available,  will be held on October 2 – 3. The cost of the workshop will be $35 each, with lanterns created during the workshop to feature in the Dream Festival held 

“This is an exciting opportunity for our community and everyone is welcome to attend the workshop and the parade in Dubbo,” Organiser and Community Hub’s Katie White said.

Ms White said anyone interested should not hesitate to contact her at the Community Hub. 

The Dream Festival, which began in 2010, was established to celebrate the arts and showcase the cultural strengths of the region.

Dubbo Regional Council gives $40,000 to the festival each year and in 2017, a NSW government grant also provided $20,000 to help market the event across the state.

The Dream Festival will be held from October 18 to 28 and will be centred around the festival’s values of striving for excellence, inclusiveness and bringing contemporary events to the country.
