The Barossa Creative Industries Centre plans to repurpose and add to the historic Barossa Regional Gallery to create a landmark $10.72M cultural hub and creative industry precinct to be a cultural beacon that truly showcase the heritage, culture and creative industries of the world renowned Barossa community – regionally, nationally and internationally.
The Centre will showcase the Barossa's cultural & creative industry potential: securing jobs, supporting migration and retention of skilled population in the region, tourism and community wellbeing for the region, State and Australia.
The facility will be a landmark Centre, located in the heart of iconic Tanunda as an expansion of the existing Barossa Regional Gallery. The spokes are multiple facilities and heritage destinations throughout the Barossa that can be activated to thrive as a network of world class cultural experiences and venues for creative activities, collaboration, skill development and education, celebration of heritage and catalysts for our community wellbeing, a focus on creative technologies to make us a leading smart region and centre of “Createch”.
Key features will include:
- broadcasting, production and workshop facilities
- exhibition, function and event spaces
- digital and contemporary heritage library facility
- external performance, art and community spaces
- writing and publishing space
In April 2018 Council undertook extensive community consultation on the masterplan. In addition to community and stakeholder engagement, Council hosted pop-ups at Barossa History Fair, Barossa Regional Gallery, Mount Pleasant Farmers Market and Williamstown town centre. The consultation attracted 42 formal submissions and 79 informal submissions and in June 2018 Council adopted the masterplan.
In February 2022 The Big Project team submitted an application for the Creative Industries Centre in the Building Better Regions Fund - Community Investments Stream - Round Six. The Round 6 Community Investments Stream supports new or expanded local events, strategic regional plans or leadership and capability strengthening activities that provide economic and social benefits to regional and remote areas.
