Lantern processions are, literally, occasions to view a community in another light. Sometimes they are one-off events, but in many cases they have become annual celebrations, and part of wider programmes of work that connect arts, health education and community development. They can provide small-scale but significant practical instances of how social capital and resilience are produced and built upon within communities. Lantern events can present a tangible image of how that ‘capital’ is in circulation in the community. They create potent, resonating images for times and places, and throw light upon what makes for healthy living. Every neighbourhood should have one.
