Jyllie Jackson & Sara Tinning

Jyllie has had over 40 years experience in the creative industries, from international fashion designer to now CEO and Artistic Director of LightnUp Inc, an independent community arts enterprise and producers of the renowned Lismore Lantern Parade. She is in the unique position of being an arts administrator, entrepreneur and practicing artist and manages projects ranging from 3 artists to 3,000 participants. Fundamental to Jyllie’s philosophy is a commitment to fostering the creative spirit and ability in individuals and their communities. This includes the principles of excellence, respect and authenticity, which allow projects to be accessible with a strong sense of ownership by the participants involved. Jyllie is working with lantern artist Sara Tinning. Sara Tinning enjoys texture and light, making a lantern brings both to life. Sara’s favourite stage of the lantern making process is covering the cane work with muslin. Sara loves working with fabrics and sewed as a child, she studied pattern making as a teen. Uninspired by the early 80’s rag-trade, Sara joined the costume department at the Australian Opera and set out on a journey through the wardrobes of theatre, film, circus, dance, weddings and more to find herself working with LightnUp and Moorambilla Voices.
