Seeding Local Stories event and project was run at Benalla Performings Arts Centre as part of the Benalla Festival. Helen and Carolyn ran a day long workshop with interested community members on the development of a theatre piece, using The Girls in Grey as an example. This was followed by 4 more workshops with 5 female local theatre makers leading to a presentation reading of their work. One of the pieces will be developed into a full length piece to be performed at BPACC. This project was assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, it’s arts funding and advisory body. Significant in-kind support was generously provided by the Benalla Rural City Council.
