Local artists gathered last Friday at the Ewingsdale Hall to kick off a two-year arts project entitled If These Halls Could Talk, which aims to celebrate country halls and the role they play in our communities.
The halls from across the region are located in Tumbulgum, Eureka, The Channon, Eatonsville, Broadwater Riley’s Hill, Bonalbo and Meerschaumvale.
Show and tell
Arts Northern Rivers creative team, in collaboration with the artists, will be creating a site-specific work inspired by the unique narrative of each hall.
Over the next two months, Arts Northern Rivers and the artists/artistic teams will be holding ‘show and tell’ events at each of the seven halls.
Anyone with stories, photos, memorabilia or a connection to the halls listed is encouraged to participate and attend the upcoming events.
Some of the artists and artistic teams teamed up with the halls include Opera Queensland, Northern Rivers Performing Arts (NORPA), Spaghetti Circus and Roundabout Theatre, Grayson Cooke, H.W. Collective, Craig Walsh and Frances Belle Parker.
