How to get involved in future works

The Barmera projectors were installed with the intention of developing a collaborative community asset supporting a range of community activities from grassroots projects to significant artistic collaborations.

Council looks forward to collaborating with our community for future projects. If you are interested in further information about the Barmera Projection site please call our Community Development Team on 8582 1922.

Letters of the Riverland

The first community-led work to be screened at the Barmera Projection site was Letters of the Riverland, an eight minute digital projection piece created by Riverland writers, photographers and digital artists (experienced and emerging).

Letters of the Riverland was a project of Part of Things, commissioned by the Berri Barmera Council and first displayed in July 2020.

The next showing is not yet programmed.

Paul White Images

A series of Paul White landscape photographs were used to turn the side of the building into a giant slide shown.

The next showing is not yet programmed.

Where to watch

The best viewing area is from the Barmera Visitor Centre on Pascoe Terrace, Barmera, this allows you to listen to any audio component of the prepared works.

There is some limited seating in the viewing area but while you’re enjoying our free projections please remember to keep up your social distancing and follow all state and federal regulations for your own health and safety. The site is on the edge of a road intersection so take care with traffic and keep your children safe away from the road edge.
