Fabrik’s Redevelopment

In early 2021 we were thrilled to learn that the Adelaide Hills Council’s $1.3 million ratepayer funded commitment to the redevelopment of Fabrik Arts + Heritage had received a boost of $3 million from the State and Federal Government funded Local Economic Recovery support, under the National Bushfire Recovery Fund.

This means that the vision for Fabrik’s redevelopment can be realised, developing an innovative and bespoke facility informed by the community and referenced by its location in the former Onkaparinga Woollen Mill. The facility will include exhibition spaces, artist studios, workshops, artists in residence, a retail store and heritage interpretation throughout the site, celebrating the history of the Mill, including its role in the recent bushfire recovery.

Right now we are busy working on the designs and plans for the redevelopment, but are still offering a range of events and workshops until the construction work commences. Once the redevelopment is underway in 2022, we are intending to create opportunities to connect our community through creative activity, but this may need to occur offsite. The best thing to do is to keep an eye on our website. Or, to be the first in the know subscribe to our newsletter.

What's happening at Fabrik? Phase one - dreaming, drawing and planning. Where we are now. Check our website before planning a visit as we are offering a very limited (but still fabulous) selection of activities. Phase two. The big build. Early 2022. We'll be unable to provide activities on site during this time, so we'll be hitting the road and popping up around the district instead. Phase three. The great hurrah! Mid-2023. We can't wait to welcome you into the new Fabrik Arts + Heritage.
