From drought to flood, this extraordinary landscape has provided inspiration to an annual Country Arts SA Artist-in-Residency program for over 40 years. Learn how the model of this Artist Residency has evolved and how it will be shaped into the future.
For three short weeks, Grindells Hut becomes home to an Artist - and sometimes their families too. A shelter from unpredictable and extreme weather and a domestic haven with a rich and complex history. Each artist will share their responses to landscape, including engagement with the First Nations Adnyamathanha traditional custodians, and discuss the environmental factors that shaped their creative outcomes and influence on their artistic practice.
Come relax in the cosey environs of The Joinery. Refreshments will be available for purchase.
FREE. Limited places, so bookings essential.
