About the Speaker
Chantelle Rytter is a community parade artist best known for founding the Atlanta BeltLine Lantern Parade with the Krewe of the Grateful Gluttons, of which she is the proud Captain. Chantelle has founded several other annual parades based in public participation; the Decatur Lantern Parade, the Grant Park Halloween Lantern Parade, and the Sandy Springs Lantern Parade on the Chattahoochee River. Her latest work, Parliament of Owls, debuted in Midtown this August. Though official word is pending, the Krewe of the Grateful Gluttons is believed to hold the world record for Most People Dressed as Garden Gnomes. Chantelle grew up in Baltimore and studied integrative arts and Penn State University. She lived in New Orleans for ten years and fell under the spell of parade culture, and the notion that creative play can be a civic gift.
