Ali Devitt-Lansom worked with the poets to support their successful application to the Regional Arts Fund, through which they were able to host a series of workshops that highlighted the power of the written and spoken word and the importance of words in defining our culture.

Remember to stay in touch with your local arts groups via the Barossa Artists Facebook page. It is a great meeting place for artists to support each other by the sharing of information, resources and events. This is where you can connect with your fellow artists and discuss each other's creative work processes, thoughts, ideas and invites the possibility to collaborate in artwork, exhibitions, commissions or just meet up with like-minded people who you can talk to about your work.

Creating a stronger Barossa economy through artistic excellence, innovation and collaborationCommon Ground is a research and development partnership between artists and numerous local businesses in the Barossa region. This residency will strengthen the arts and cultural sector by introducing Barossa community groups and businesses with an internationally recognised Australian artist. Common Ground is bringing diverse groups of people and organisations together that otherwise would not be connected and thus improve collaborations between those that live in and visit the Barossa.
