We really value our wonderful partners Community Design Agency in Mumbai, India who are leading placemaking through the arts and this will be our third collaboration with Streets Reimagined.

Lamplighter Arts CIC are supporting CDA with UK mentors as they shine a light on the talents of the youth arts scene and produce the first ever Govandi Arts Festival.

As soon as we have produced Church Road Lantern Parade '22 (TBC) we shall be packing our tools into suitcases and travelling to Mumbai where we can't wait to meet the community of Govandi and create an illuminated procession with them.
