Talk of the Town: The Narrogin Elders Project came out of the community’s keen awareness that the memories, wisdom and tales of the town’s older generation were one day going to be lost – and for the most part they hadn’t been recorded.
ARtS Narrogin have secured funding to engage multi-platform theatre company The Kabuki Drop in an exciting community art project to engage local seniors sharing their personal stories via theatre performance. The project will tap into the wisdom and humour of our senior citizens to offer a very different experience for audiences.
In March this year ARtS Narrogin put together a grant application for the Country Arts WA Project Fund. Entitled ‘Stories off the Wall!’ the project aimed to provide local artists with professional development and mentoring during the design and production phases of a large scale mural project. With this opportunity and support we envisaged that local artists would develop the confidence to tackle future mural projects of their own around Narrogin.
