Set designer, Lucy Reeves Khan started Window Wanderland in 2015, inspired by her vivid imagination, her deep-seated community spirit and her personal experiences of isolation due to years of chronic illness. Lucy imagined her local streets alive with other people viewing dramatic, beautiful or just silly scenes in the windows around her neighbourhood. She wondered if, in the dark of winter, these displays would cheer up others too. She put on her first event in her own community. It was a huge success.
Window Wanderland say, “Community events are massively beneficial for spreading happiness and a sense of belonging in neighbourhoods. But they often rely on the sweat, determination and dedication of a handful of people. It’s not always sustainable. We know putting on a Window Wanderland event is definitely, definitely worth it. But it isn’t easy doing it by yourself. Our website is designed to make it much easier. It is created by Window Wanderland CIC, a non-profit organisation that aims to spread happiness and bring communities together. We share everything we’ve learnt, offer inspiration and provide customisable toolkits, so organisers can create their own events, year after year, with ease.
