Regional Arts Victoria’s annual Home is Where the Hall is has drawn to a close, with communities across Victoria and Tasmania celebrating the cultural life of their halls.
Over 55 events were registered as a part of this years’ program and we thank all of those who supported the project.
Regional Arts Victoria’s Home is Where the Hall is celebrates the incredible diversity and the vital role that halls and their committees play across our state. From art exhibitions to film screenings, and music performances to markets, Home is Where the Hall is shines a light on these important community hubs. This is the third year of this important community arts initiative.
“As one of the centres of a town, the community hall provides a focal point, always ready for any gathering. Today it’s an art gallery, tomorrow it’s a theatre, next week it’s home to a live art creative development” said Esther Anatolitis, Director, Regional Arts Victoria. “We’ve been inspired by the passion and imagination captured by each of the communities involved.”
Here are some highlights from this year’s program:
- This year Tasmania joined us, with two of their halls registering events.
- We hosted two Regional Cultural Forums, one in Bruthen and the other in Kaniva.
- Yarroweyah got particularly involved, registering four separate events throughout November.
