VICTORIA, Kyneton, The Dad Show

EVENT DATE: 7 & 8 November 2014

The Dad Show is a new performance project by Bron Batten, in which she will curate local contemporary artists to create and perform new short works with their own fathers. Collaborating artists from the Macedon area include Christian Bagin, Michael Langley, Sarah Lockwood, Hannah Monagle, Wes Snelling and Henry Vyhnal. The Dad Show is inspired by Bron’s award winning theatre show Sweet Child of Mine which she created with her parents in 2011 and has since toured to Perth, Sydney, Adelaide and Chicago. The work will open a dialogue through art, reaching out across the generation gap to facilitate a meeting of child, parent and audience in an open artistic space, where familial connections and tensions can be explored playfully through live performance. The first incarnation of this project has been supported by Punctum Inc through the Sidney Myer Fund and will take place in St Mary’s Hall in the Kyneton township in November 2014.

NEW NAMBROK HALL An Ambitious Enterprise. If any tangible evidence were wanted of what can be accomplished in this district by community effort let attention be directed to the monument of local enterprise at Nambrok-the new public hall. Some years ago conflicting interests caused-but that is another story; it is “to-day that’s sweet.” A visit of inspection at once causes astonishment and wonderment as to how it was done. Previously there stood two ordinary country district halls about two miles apart; to-day there stands a beautifully appointed hall and annexes that would do credit to areas of a thousand population. The hall may be described as aero plane shape, the wings being the ante-rooms.

Share in the stories of the ANZACs





August 2014 marks 100 years since the commencement of the First World War. Across the globe, the ANZAC Centenary (2014 – 2018) will be marked by millions of people, in places of special importance and in ways personally meaningful to them.

In Victoria, local communities will have the opportunity to plan their own commemorations and to share in the stories of those who served. We encourage your community to hold an event in your hall to remember the ANZACs, and register it as part of the Anzac Centenary program. If your event is in November be sure to also register it with our Home is Where the Hall is program.

These stories will reconnect Victorians to the ANZAC legacy and create a lasting testimonial that will educate and inspire future generations.

A number of grants and initiatives have been launched by the Victorian Government to assist project development. These grants aim to support initiatives that commemorate, honour and remember the service and sacrifice of Victoria’s World War I veterans and their communities.

Examples of these include:
