Consultation has concluded

18 October update:

We had nearly 50 ideas submitted through this portal and by other methods. They were shortlisted down to Yarn Space, Interwoven, Art at the Heart, ZuHause, Fabrik and Weftspace. The Council will consider a final recommendation at its meeting on 23 October 2018. Watch this space!


As a description, it’s not bad: the Adelaide Hills Arts & Heritage Hub.

But we want to do better. We want a name that tells our story and speaks of the connections and creative community we hope to build here.

Our story

Lobethal is located in the Adelaide Hills, a region that has significance to both Peramangk and Kaurna people. The Arts & Heritage Hub is located in the heart of the classic industrial site of the former Onkaparinga Woollen Mill, a major enterprise in town since the mid-1800s. Generations of Australians have snuggled beneath the beautiful blankets designed and created by the Mill’s skilled local workforce.

Our future

The Arts & Heritage Hub will weave this past into a new, community-centred creative space, telling the history of the site and creating new experiences through exciting arts activity.

Our big picture includes a captivating heritage interpretation, acknowledging the ownership of the traditional Indigenous custodians and telling the stories of former Mill workers. Gallery spaces will show changing exhibitions of contemporary art; visitors will connect and learn from artists by visiting their studios and joining their workshops; Mill Square will play host to outdoor arts events and gatherings.

The Hub will be creative, connected and community-centred.
