City of Sydney is inviting expressions of interest from groups wishing to perform and participate in a community program being produced as part of Lunar Lanterns, a major new event in the 2016 Sydney Chinese New Year Festival, from 6-14 February 2016.

Exhibited over 9 days and nights, Lunar Lanterns will bring thousands of people into the city to see large scale outdoor lanterns representing the signs of the Lunar zodiac. Community groups will be provided an area to showcase their performance skills to audiences at some of the lantern locations.

We are looking for traditional and contemporary performances, skills demonstrations and community group run participatory activities.
To be part of this exciting new program, please complete your details and submit your application by Monday 2 November 2015.

We will be holding an information session at 6pm on Wednesday 21 October at Town Hall House and we’d love to see you there. To register your attendance please email
