Cultural Opportunity in Heritage Berri Building

Country Arts SA is offering the rare opportunity to bring a creative new lease of life to the heritage property at 23 Wilson St, Berri.

The building, which currently houses the River Lands Gallery, will be available in 2017 for a suitable operator to activate for alternate arts-related use.

Traditional rent is not required; however the successful applicant will be responsible for costs associated with the set-up and ongoing occupation.

Country Arts SA is seeking an operator who can bring creative and engaging ideas to maximise this building and add to the cultural richness of the Riverland. We believe the arts can be a catalyst for tourism, employment and economic development and seek an operator who shares this vision for the benefit of the wider community as well as their own enterprise.

Partnerships between arts, health, community and tourism are encouraged to apply.

23 Wilson St is located in the heart of Berri’s CBD in an area offering specialty shops, eateries, services, the Town Hall and Council Offices. The property was originally built in 1917 as the “Old Irrigation Office” and in 1996 was renovated by Country Arts SA to provide office and gallery space opportunities for the community.

Applications close: 5pm Tuesday 28 February 2017
