Public Events

The community arts team work closely with GAC’s sub-committees and other agencies to put on a range of events throughout the year, aimed at both residents and visitors.

Guernsey Arts Commission’s Lantern Parade

Throughout the dark winter months, children and young people had the chance to make a lantern leading up to the island’s Lantern Parade in March 2017. Lantern making workshops will ran through February where families or individuals made a lantern.
