    1. OVERVIEW

    1.1 What is the Parade?In 2018 the Joondalup Festival will be celebrating the Citys 20th birthday, encouraging patrons to reflect on our journey since becoming a City.

    One of the highlights of the Festival is the Twilight Lantern Parade, a participative community arts project that showcases the talent, energy and creativity of the local community. With over 1,500 people parading last year to an audience of over 8,000 people, the Twilight Lantern Parade is the biggest community arts event in the northern corridor.

    1.2 Twilight Lantern Parade theme The Water Story

    Complementing the Joondalup Festival 2018 theme of Perform, Create, Reflect, The Water Story is a story inspired by water, a vital resource and feature of the environment. Each participating school will have an important part of the story to tell. Once selected for the parade you will be allocated your plot point or character. It will be very important that you tell the part you are allocated, so the story will make sense to the audience. For a short synopsis of The Water Story see page eight.

    1.3 How can we participate?Schools may choose either:

    Gold Entry: Artist-in-Residence

    An artist-facilitated school workshop program: Schools within the City may apply to be matched with a professional artist to design and perform their parade entry. The number of workshops on offer is limited and will be offered to the first schools to register. (See page 6 for more detail)

    Silver Entry: Financial Support

    A financial assistance package. Schools within the City may apply for financial assistance up to $500.00 for funding to purchase materials to create their own parade entries. (See page 6 for more detail)

    THE WATER STORY (including designs for some of this years lanterns.)Below are the major plot points in The Water Story, which will unfold through music, movement, lanterns and action during the parade. Each participating school will have an important part of the story to tell. Once selected for the parade you will be given your part in the story to tell. It will be very important that you tell the part you are allocated so the story will make sense to the audience.

    1. Lake of BeautyThe scene is set a full lake at sunset, stunning colours and flocks of birds. The moon appears, drawing animals to the lake to drink and celebrate. We see the moons reflection in the lake. It is idyllic, serene and beautiful.

    2. UrbanizationNew dawn and a new day urbanization begins. We see houses, cars and roads, lawns with sprinklers, a city growing bigger and bigger.

    3. The Lake DriesAll the water has transformed into parched earth and green algae; the animals have disappeared. Everything is red and dusty. We see some dead trees/tumbleweeds; the wind blows hollow and empty.

    4. Blue MoonA half-moon appears, saddened that she can no longer see her reflection in the lake. She begins to cry.

    5. Storm Clouds gather, we see lightning flashes and pouring rain.

    6. FloodThe rain continues and we see houses and buildings and trees and cars swept away.

    7. RegrowthNew moon-new beginning. People begin replanting, at first tiny seedlings. The regrowth grows. Rebuilding the new city. A green city. We see tree planting, regeneration, conservation, protecting reserves, the city integrating with nature, not simply replacing it.

    9. Full Moon, Happy LakeThe waters have returned to the lake; the locals seek to protect its beauty. The animals return, as does the moon and her reflection, along with the stars and the Milky Way.

    10. CelebrationCelebratory percussive bands and dancers/diverse community groups.
