The Northern Rivers is a region of villages, most with a hall that lay at their heart. Some sit proud on hills, some tilted with age but all are places of stories and keepers of secrets. If These Halls Could Talk is a multi-arts project celebrating these halls and the role they play in our communities. The project invited people to nominate their local hall for a chance to be involved in the project. Seven halls from across the Northern Rivers have been selected to have a renowned creative team collaborate with their community to create a site-specific work inspired by the unique narrative of their hall.
If These Halls Could Talk is managed by Arts Northern Rivers in conjunction with a steering committee of leading professional arts and cultural development practitioners from around the region.
