On 18th September 2021, Jewellery maker and visual artist Maral, invited all to Runcorn Hill Park to decorate her giant lantern with biodegradable materials, as part of the Liberty Festival 2021.

During the lantern making, Maral used this space to discuss identity, intersectionality and our relationship with the natural world, and reflect on how the natural world does not respond to race, culture, gender and beliefs; it is the ultimate equaliser. These conversations helped inform the decoration on the lantern.

Then on Saturday evening, the lantern creation was lit and proudly joined Liberty Festival’s parade in the park.
