COMING IN 2021 . . . 

We wouldn’t normally announce a work-in-progress but this one’s special. Alana Valentine has been making work with communities for decades but for this show she needs your help. Alana’s mother and stepfather were married at Wayside Chapel when she was just a little girl. That’s her there in the picture.

Now Alana wants to hear from anyone who was married at Wayside Chapel and has a story to share. She’ll be interviewing people and conducting community forums throughout 2020 and building their stories into a new work exploring the radical contribution of this mighty little chapel on a Kings Cross side street for a world premiere at another rag tag organisation in a Surry Hills side street…

RSVP for the first community forum at Wayside Chapel at 6.30pm 21 January 2020 or register your story below.

RSVP Reading 21 Jan 2020
