Ten Days on the Island has partnered with Island Magazine to commission Tasmanian writers to write about the unique community halls dotted around the island that will be part of If These Halls Could Talk for Festival 2021.
Ten Days on the Island and Island Magazine will co-design and implement a literary initiative to complement If These Halls Could Talk, seeking writers to respond creatively to the project with a text-based work of up to 3500 words.
If These Halls Could Talk is a multi-arts initiative which will celebrate ten community halls and the role they play in our society. The planning and engagement with artists and writers will culminate in a statewide celebration of the halls across the three weekends of Ten Days on the Island, 5-21 March 2021. Renowned artists and creative teams will transform the halls into immersive site-specific festival experiences in the three regional heartlands of Tasmania – West and North West, North and North East and South.
The halls include: Stanley Town Hall, Stanley; Gaiety Theatre, Zeehan; Portland Memorial Hall, St Helens; The Mechanics Institute, Scottsdale; Rowella Hall, Rowella; Ross Town Hall, Ross; Liffey Hall, Liffey; Glen Huon Hall, Glen Huon; Sorell Memorial Hall, Sorell and New Norfolk.
For more information about the project, see the Island Magazine website.
If These Halls Could Talk has been developed in association with Arts Northern Rivers and is based on their original concept.
