BPW's Outreach & Community Programme included The Lantern Light Project - a new and innovative Intergenerational Art project introducing printmaking techniques to teenagers and older people living in East Belfast. Ashfield Boys' High School and older people from Clamil Independent Housing schemes collaborated to learn new printmaking skills in screenprint, monoprint, linocut and collage and saw the creation of handprinted paper lanterns for Culture Night in addition to a colourful suite of lanterns for display in Belfast City Hall. Building on the success of this, the group then jointly created a series of screenprinted 'Teabots' - a hybrid robot/teapot. Some of these adorable and subversive little hybrids are included in a 2014 Calendar. The project has been made possible by funding from Big Lottery Culture for All, Department of Social Development and by the good work of our artists Lisa Malone, Sarah Crooks and sarah Majury. Thanks to all our participants and partners -Ashfield Boys School, Mullan Mews and Sydenham Court and project coordinator Paula Campbell.
