Come help tell Eatonsville Hall's story

ARTS Northern Rivers and Eatonsville Hall are calling for anyone who has stories, photos, memorabilia or a connection to the hall to come along to Show + Tell a fun community day at the hall from noon-2pm on Saturday, February 27.

There will be a barbecue and live entertainment by local jazz and folk musicians organised by the Hall Committee in the surrounding park.

Show + Tell is the first phase Arts Northern Rivers' If These Halls Could Talk project; a multi-arts project celebrating halls and the role they play in our communities.

Local resident and hall supporter Marty Williams said that a passionate group of Eatonsville residents have been breathing new life into the hall over the past year.

"It is definitely paying off with more and more community members getting involved," said Mr Williams.

Show + Tell will also be an opportunity to meet Frances Belle Parker, the visual artist commissioned to work with the Eatonsville community.

Ms Parker will be working within the community to create a work inspired by the stories and people of Eatonsville Hall and its surrounds.

The Hall sits a top a bend in the mighty Clarence River, which is a constant source of inspiration for the artist and a recurring theme in her work.

"I'm thrilled to be the artist working with the Eatonsville Hall and it's community," said Ms Parker.

"I'm looking forward to discovering more of the history of the hall and the people who have helped to shape the story of the hall."

If These Halls Could Talk project is funded by Arts NSW Regional Partnership funding and Regional Arts NSW Regional Arts Fund
