We are delighted to announce that the theme for the 2016 Moving On Parade will be “We are Walking Works of Art”, with the costumes and sculptures inspired by the work of the great masters and modern mavericks. Think Van Gogh, Dali, Banksy and Picasso coming down Lewes High Street on 8 July!
Last year the parade theme was local wildlife so we thought it would be great this year to focus on something uniquely human, by celebrating the lives and works of great artists. There are many artists living and working in this area and there is a world of creativity for the children to have fun with and explore when planning their parade. All of human experience and imagination is reflected in art, so the sky is the limit. It will be fascinating to see how the children interpret such a rich theme and we think it will be an extraordinary spectacle to enjoy in July.
We are inviting suggestions for the artists that could be represented in the parade – why not email firstname.lastname@example.org with your ideas or post on our Facebook site at https://www.facebook.com/Patina? We’d love to hear from you!
