Creating a stronger Barossa economy through artistic excellence and innovation

Common Ground is a research and development partnership between artists and local business in the Barossa region, which will strengthen the arts and cultural sector whilst improving brand and consumer value opportunities for local business.

It will identify the artistic and economic benefits derived from placing arts practitioners within a business setting through a series of residencies. Each residency will be unique: businesses will be chosen to represent a broad cross-section of the industry in the region. The artistic curatorial process will be similarly diverse, with five artists or arts groups of any discipline, who represent excellence in their field, chosen to work within these business spaces to create new, engaging and diverse works.

Developed as a part of Regional Development Australia’s Art Music Design initiative, Common Ground is a chance for creatives and businesses in the Barossa region to work together to achieve greater economic outcomes through excellence in artistic practice.

Regional Development Australia is currently seeking business partners for this exciting project, to be completed in 2018. For more information email leah@barossa.org.au
