Protected: Written in Chalk

A massive SHOUT OUT and THANK YOU to the team at EG for screening this film to staff involved in EGS NO BACON.  We are thrilled to see the film being used in such a wonderful and thought provoking way.

At the Australian Television and Media Group, we love telling stories which encourage us to look at who we are, ask how we got to where we are, and to consider where we would like to go.  We believe the stories we tell and watch help to shape the way we understand ourselves and the world around us.

The ETERNITY story is one which provides a mirror, or a lens, through which we can see ourselves and understand our history.  More than that, it is a story which also provides an insight into where we, as a nation, are headed and what we value today.

I hope you enjoy the film, and I am looking forward to joining the EGS NO BACON discussion on Tuesday 15 November, 2022 - which will be one day after the 90 year anniversary of the first time Arthur Stace wrote Eternity!

Written in Chalk: the echo of Arthur Stace

This is the next chapter of the Eternity story, building on the work of internationally recognised cultural and artistic legends Arthur Stace, Martin Sharp, Ignatius Jones, Lawrence Johnston, Dion Beebe, Jonathan Mills and many others.

Written in Chalk looks at how Eternity has been used in Australia and around the world since appearing on the Harbour Bridge at the Sydney Millennium celebrations, and celebrates the surprising ways in which Eternity has been embraced and adapted as an indelible vehicle of personal, social and cultural expression.

For more than 90 years, Eternity still captures our imagination, generates headlines, and continues to play a part in our cultural story.

This next chapter of the Eternity story features a broad cross-section of well known television and media personalities, internationally recognised theatre and opera producers, multi-award winning writers and authors, independent community artists, street artists, university lecturers, and social, political and environmental activists who each represent the Eternity story in their own unique ways.
