Illuminate is a series of events across the East Midlands that celebrate and explore the origins of the Mayflower Pilgrims journey in 1620. For the 2018 Gainsborough event, Electric Egg worked with local schools to explore the themes and imagery of the story. In our workshops, school children made their own stained-glass window designs which were then scanned and included in an animated film. The film, projected across Gainsborough’s historic Old Hall, then formed the backdrop to a mass lantern procession. This project is just one of a number in which we’ve worked with local communities to tell their stories and bring their creative ideas to life.
