The Adelaide Hills Council values the vibrant arts culture of our region, working with local artists and the wider community to facilitate and promote activities that enhance culture and strengthen the sense of place.
Arts and Heritage Hub
The Council is working with the community and other stakeholders to create an Arts and Heritage Hub at the Old Woollen Mill in Lobethal. The site will showcase and celebrate stories from the working days of the mill, while spaces will be created for arts exhibitions, workshops and performance. We also hope to incorporate elements recognising the Aboriginal culture of the area. See more information here.
Adelaide Hills International Sculpture Symposium
This bi-annual event has created a lasting public art legacy across the Adelaide Hills. The first symposium in 2012 resulted in three of the original eight sculptures being placed at Balhannah, Lobethal and Stirling. A further eight were created and placed in sites across the Hills in 2014, and a final eight during 2016. Click here to discover the sculpture trail.
South Australian Living Artists (SALA)
The Adelaide Hills is strongly represented each year in the SALA Festival as numerous galleries, studios, restaurants and businesses liaise with and exhibit local artists. There were over 40 exhibitions in the Adelaide Hills as part of SALA 2017, and we are very excited to see our representation grow in 2018. Adelaide Hills Council is supporting exhibitions in Norton Summit and Lobethal again this year: click here for for more information.
