Written in Chalk

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 the word Eternity has been used in Australia and around the world over the past 20 years – since appearing on the Harbour Bridge at the Sydney Millennium celebrations.

The documentary celebrates the surprising ways in which the word 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 know 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.
