Regional Arts Victoria has celebrated its fifth year of the annual Home is Where the Hall is project, designed to shine a light on our regional community halls.

Participants from Victoria and Tasmania were joined by South Australian halls for the first time, with South Australia registering 6 events in the state’s south east.

It was also our biggest year yet, with over 73 events registered and 38 towns participating  in Home is Where the Hall is for the first time.

Home is Where the Hall is reached even further into less travelled places, including towns from remote areas such as Murrayville, Tubbut and Goongerah.

Regional Arts Victoria ran nine events in community halls across the state including 5,000 poppies in Briagolong and across Gippsland, Frame by Frame in Swan Hill and the Regional Cultural Forum on Arts Health and Succession Planning at the Dunkeld Community Centre.

Through our Connecting Places program, Regional Arts Victoria also took Mikelangelo’s ‘Cave Waits Cohen’ on the road to community venues in Cheshunt, Charlton, Stratford and Narbethong.

We discovered some wonderful hall histories and helped shine a light on community events including art exhibitions, dances, markets, film screenings, festivals, yoga classes, bake offs,  performances and fundraisers.

Regional Arts Victoria would like to sincerely thank everyone who participated and supported Home is Where the Hall is in 2015.

HIWTHI 2015: Welcome Tasmania & South Australia!

Regional Arts Victoria is excited to announce that both Tasmanian Regional Arts and Country Arts South Australia have come on board this year to deliver the Home is Where the Hall is program across their states.

This is the first time the Home is Where the Hall is program will be rolled out in all three states as we join to celebrate community halls in the month of November 2015.

In 2014 Tasmania Regional Arts piloted the program in Tasmania, where we received registrations from halls in Cygnet, Gunns Plains and St. Marys.

We look forward to seeing how communities are celebrating their town hubs this November in the southern states!

Registrations are now open until November 30 2015.
