Ballina Shire hosts final Show+Tell event for halls project

THE final Show + Tell event as part of If These Halls Could Talk will be at Meerschaum Vale Hall in the Ballina Shire.

It will be held on April 10 from 11am until 1.30pm.

Arts Northern Rivers and the Meerschaum Vale Hall committee members have invited anyone with stories, photos or memorabilia of the hall to come along and share with them.

It will also be an opportunity to meet filmmakers Poppy Walker and Sophie Hexter from H.W. Collective who have been commissioned to work with the community to create a work inspired by the hall and its surrounds.

Ms Walker and Ms Hexter work together to produce motion pictures.

They will be at the Show + Tell to introduce themselves, their work and to uncover stories from the community that will help them produce a new work.

Arts Northern Rivers has partnered with ABC North Coast and photographer Jules Ober to bring three recording booths at the Show + Tell to record Stories of the Hall, Faces of the Hall and Memorabilia of the Hall.

Meerschaum Vale Hall is located on the corner of Wardell and Marom Creek roads.
